Abstract

A tunable single-longitudinal-mode (SLM) fiber optical parametric oscillator (FOPO) is proposed and demonstrated experimentally. A sub-ring cavity with a short cavity length is used to suppress the longitudinal modes and broaden the longitudinal mode spacing. A fiber loop mirror, consisted of an unpumped erbium-doped fiber, acts as an autotracking filter for providing fine mode restriction and ensuring the single-frequency operation. The measurement based on a homodyne method shows that the FOPO provides the SLM output. Furthermore the SLM FOPO can be tunable over 14 nm for each of the signal and the idler, which is limited only by the gain bandwidth of the fiber optical parametric amplifier.
