Abstract

We have systematically studied the 45º tilted fiber grating (45TFG) as a functional device for Erbium doped fiber laser (EDFL) mode locking. A number of 45TFGs with different polarization dependent loss (PDL) have been fabricated. Mode locked Erbium doped fiber laser using these devices have been characterized in terms of threshold, pulse duration, signal to noise ratio (SNR), and spectral width. Our results show that a 45TFG with higher PDL could achieve better laser results. By using a 45TFG with 24dB PDL, the mode locked laser has 8.1% conversion efficiency and a threshold of 200mW.
