High Power Linearly Polarized Raman Fiber Laser With Stable Temporal Output

We demonstrate a high power linearly polarized Raman fiber laser (RFL) pumped by an amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) source. Temporal-stable operation of RFL could be ensured owing to the employment of ASE, which mitigates the inherent intensity noise compared with the classic scheme adopting laser oscillator as pump source. In this experiment, the RFL has up to 119.5 W output power, with central wavelength of 1129.2 nm, and full width at half maximum (FWHM) linewidth of about 4.18 nm. The polarization extinction ratio (PER) of the Raman laser is about 23 dB. Moreover, this laser has excellent long-term and short-term stabilities in terms of the output power and time domain.
