Ultra-long and high-stability Random laser based on EDF gain-media and Rayleigh scattering distributed mirror

Abstract: An ultra-long, low-threshold and high-stability Random distributed feedback fiber laser (RDF-FL) based on Erbium-doped fiber (EDF) to provide the gain medium, and single mode fiber (SMF) as a distributed mirror in combination with fiber-brag grating (FBG) to form the cavity is proposed in this paper. Typical random laser radiation for a SMF length of 50 km with a low-threshold of 10 dBm and high-stability (~0.1 dB) is achieved, thanks to the design of the cavity and the high-gain from the pumped erbium-doped fiber. Besides, 200 km quasi-losses random laser due to the distributed mirror and the FBG reflector is demonstrated.
