Abstract

We report a widely tunable ring-cavity tellurite fiber Raman laser covering the S + C + L + U band. A tunable range ( 1495 1600 nm , limited by the tunable optical bandpass filter) over 100 nm is obtained by using a single-mode tellurite fiber with high Raman gain coefficients ( 55 W 1 km 1 ) and large Raman shift ( 22.3 THz ) as the gain medium. Furthermore, the free-running 1665 nm Raman fiber laser is achieved from the ring cavity by removing the tunable optical bandpass filter, which shows that such a tellurite fiber has potential for constructing a widely tunable fiber Raman laser covering the S + C + L + U band. A high optical signal-to-noise ratio of over 60 dB for almost all of the tunable range is also demonstrated.
