Abstract

A linear-type wavelength-tunable all-polarization-maintaining fiber mode-locked laser is proposed for the first time, to our knowledge, and is implemented with an Er-doped fiber and polarization-maintaining fiber components. The tuning range of the center wavelength is from 1533.7 nm to 1565.6 nm. The linear-type configuration makes the proposed laser simpler and more compact, allowing it to achieve the highest repetition rate of 126.5 MHz among C-band wavelength-tunable mode-locked lasers due to its short cavity length. Also, its polarization-maintaining fiber components provide reliable operating robustness. The significant wavelength tunability and high repetition rate of the proposed laser can be expected to make it an attractive resource for various applications, including optical communications, broadband spectroscopic LIDAR, and high-precision ranging.
