abstract

We report on the development of a compact, all fibre laser source operating at 1 μm with a linearly polarized (extinction ratio > 20 dB) and very narrow linewidth (12 pm) output. The unique cavity design included a fibre Bragg grating high reflector and output coupler, inscribed via the point-by-point method directly into the active core. A single splice within the cavity between the fibre incorporating the high reflector and the output coupler permitted re-orientation of the stressors at an angle of 90 degrees to each other, which produced a single lasing polarisation. This simple technique removed the need for a more complicated and expensive polarization controller.
