Abstract
In this paper, we propose a simple approach for achieving multiwavelength tunable Brillouin-Erbium fiber lasers utilizing fiber loop mirror technique. The impact of Brillouin gain contributed by the change of single-mode fiber length on the number of channels is explained. A low threshold operation of 3.5, 4 and 8 mW is achieved at 25, 8.8 and 1.9 km respectively. Simultaneous oscillation of 20, 21 and 35 channels with equally channel spacing of 0.088 nm is obtained at the optimum Brillouin pump power and Brillouin pump wavelength for 1.9, 8.8 and 25 km respectively.
