Polarization related phenomena in Nd-doped fiber lasers

Uri Ghera, Nir Friedman, Moshe Tur

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Lasers made of regular (i.e., non-polarization-maintaining) rare earth doped single-mode fibers have birefringence which is randomly distributed along the length of the gain medium. This property and its consequences are examined in detail, together with applications to tunable lasers, as well as to lasers capable of simultaneously lasing in a number of discrete spectral lines.
