Abstract

A wavelength-tunable all-fiber Erbium-doped mode-locked fiber laser based on carbon nanotubes and 45° tilted fiber grating (TFG) is demonstrated. We investigated the effect of PDL of 45TFG in the tuning range of a mode locked laser. The central wavelength of the laser can be tuned continuously from 1559.85 nm to 1564.46 nm with a tuning range of 4.6 nm using a weak 45TFG and from 1553.37 nm to 1568.63 nm with a tuning range of 15.26 nm using a strong 45TFG. The laser maintains high signal to noise ratio >50 dB across all the wavelength tuning range.
