Abstract

We have demonstrated the realization of a high-polarization random fiber laser
(RFL) output based on the hybrid Raman and Erbium gain with the tailored effect provided
by a 45°-tilted fiber Bragg grating (45°-TFBG), revealing an improvement in the polarization
extinction ratio (PER) and achieving a PER of ~15.3 dB. The hybrid RFL system
incorporating the 45°-TFBG has been systematically characterized. The random lasing
wavelength can be fixed under the extremely weak feedback effect of the 45°-TFBG with
reflectivity of 0.09%. In addition, numerical simulation has verified that the weak feedback
can boost the random lasing emission with fixed wavelength using a power balance model,
which is in good accordance with the experiment results.
