Abstract

When an intracavity polarizer is introduced into a Fabry-Perot Nd-doped fiber laser, wide wavelength tunability is achieved either by rotating the polarizer or by varying the fiber birefringence with an in-line polarization controller. The intra-cavity polarizer also produces considerable line-narrowing. A model based on birefringence dispersion is proposed.
