Introduction Fiber Raman devices are one of the remarkable advances in the area of fiber lasers and amplifiers. They have a special advantage of flexibility in wavelength, as gain is available at (C) 8 OSA 1 July 8 / Vol. 16, No. 1 / OPTICS EXPRESS 197

2 arbitrary wavelengths with the right pump source and laser is widely tunable for broad Raman gain spectrum in glass fiber. Therefore, fiber Raman devices are very attractive for a variety of applications, especially where the laser sources are required to be tunable and/or operate at specific wavelengths that are not easily reachable by other laser devices. One example of such applications is laser guide stars, which requires a laser at 89 nm to excite a resonant backscattering in the mesospheric Sodium D line [1, ]. Efficient fiber Raman lasers have been realized [3, ] and commercialized. Frequency doubling of near-infrared fiber Raman laser has been studied to generate yellow lasers [, 6]. But linewidth of these lasers is too broad (86 GHz in [6]) for laser guide star application. A master oscillator power amplifier scheme could be the way to solve the linewidth problem. Fiber Raman amplifiers have been used to amplify low power narrow band signal in the field of optical communications [7, 8]. However, high power (watts) narrow-band (GHz and below) laser sources utilizing fiber Raman gain have not been researched intensively up to now. Obvious difficulties in building such laser sources are stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS), which will send the light back along the single mode fiber and limit the achievable power, and line broadening by third-order optical nonlinearity [9]. We show in this paper that high power narrow band fiber Raman amplifiers of several watts are feasible to an extent which allows practical uses, and still have much room for improvement. An explanation is given at the end of section 3. We had previously reported a fiber Raman amplifier system at 1178nm with linewidth of a few GHzs and frequency doubling to yellow [1, ]. In this paper, we report our recent works on fiber Raman amplifiers with linewidth of ~1MHz. Up to.8 W, ~1 MHz 1178 nm laser is obtained by Raman amplification of a distributed feedback (DFB) diode laser seed in standard single mode fibers, limited by SBS. The linewidth and spectral density are improved by a few hundreds times, compared to our previous work [].. Experimental setup Fig. 1. Schematic diagram of a back pumped DFB diode laser seeded fiber Raman amplifier. Figure 1 shows the diagram of experimental setup, which is a standard fiber Raman amplifier scheme. A commercial (Toptica Gmbh) DFB diode laser at 1178nm is used as seed, which has a linewidth < MHz in μs according to the specifications. After an optical isolator, the seed light is coupled to a single mode fiber. The coupled power is about 9mW. The Raman amplifiers are counter-propagating pumped at 11 nm by an Yb fiber laser via a WDM wavelength combiner. The unused pump power is coupled out with WDM to protect the diode. Three pieces of fibers are used in the experiments, which are standard nonpolarization-maintaining single mode fibers of (A) 1m Nufern 16XP, (B) 1m Nufern 16XP and (C) m Corning HI16, respectively. We choose these standard 1 μm fibers, because they are compatible with other fiber components so that it is simple in handling. Moreover, these fibers offer less optical nonlinearity that is responsible for linewidth broadening, which we want to minimize at the same time, comparing to other Raman (C) 8 OSA 1 July 8 / Vol. 16, No. 1 / OPTICS EXPRESS 198

3 speciality fibers. The spectrum of output is analyzed by a Toptica FPI unit with 1GHz free spectral range, which should give a resolution of.mhz. The backward propagating light from the amplifier is reflected from the two polarizers of the isolator and collected for power and spectrum measurements. 3. Results and discussion It is expected that a narrow linewidth (few MHz) seeded fiber Raman amplifier will experience SBS at certain power level. The signal light will be frequency down-shifted and sent back to the seed. Therefore, for a given type of available fiber, the key of the experiment is to optimize the fiber length so that the amplifier reaches SBS threshold at the highest available pump power. 3 1 Fiber used in the amplifier: A B C Backward Light Power [W] Fiber used in the amplifier: A B C Fig.. (left) Amplifier output power versus pump power with 3 different fibers: (A) 1m Nufern 16XP, (B) 1m Nufern 16XP and (C) m Corning HI16; (right) corresponding backward light. Figure (left) shows the amplifier output power versus the pump power with fiber A, B and C. We obtain 1.1,.8, and 1.3W, respectively. Fig. (right) shows the power curves for the corresponding backward light. The backward beam is collected from the isolator between the amplifier and seed. We see a clear threshold of backward light for the fibers B and C. If we increase the pump further for fiber C, the output actually decreases as expected. The light is sent back by SBS, and the system becomes unstable. The length of fiber B is almost optimized. It reaches the threshold of backward light closed to the highest pump power. The backward light consists of two components. One is the amplified spontaneous Raman scattering and Raman amplified signal light, which is reflected from the fiber ends and/or the splicing points or back scattering inside the fiber, which has the same wavelength as the output light. The second is SBS of the 1178 nm signal, which is amplified by Raman scattering from 111 nm at the same time. The latter is the limiting process. These two components are easily distinguishable because they have a wavelength difference of about 1 GHz at 1178nm. The spectrum of the backward light is measured with a Fabry-Perot spectral analyzer, which has a free spectral range larger than SBS frequency shift, fed from the isolator output. While we increase the pump power, the Raman spectral line appears earlier than the SBS line. But the SBS line increases much faster. Figure 3 (left) shows a spectrum taken at. W for amplifier with fiber B. The peak SBS shift for Nufern 16XP fiber is found to be 1. GHz at 1178 nm. (C) 8 1 July 8 / Vol. 16, No. 1 / OPTICS EXPRESS 199

(right) dependence of backward light power on pump power, for amplifiers with different seed linewidth. To know the proportion of the SBS component in the backward light, we broaden the laser by applying a noise RF signal to the DFB laser, and check the reduction in the backward light. Figure 3 (right) shows a comparison of backward light power for amplifiers with narrow linewidth and broadened line of MHz. At MHz, SBS is completely suppressed at this power level. The remaining component still increases nonlinearly because it is amplified by stimulated Raman scattering. The spectrum of the amplifier output is measured. Figure (left) shows linewidth versus output power for the case of fiber B. At low power, the linewidth seems nearly constant at around. MHz. This should be due to the resolution limit of the Fabry-Perot spectral analyzer. At higher power, we can resolve a linewidth increase, which is measured up to 1MHz at.w. The linewidth broadening is not very strong, because standard fibers are used in our amplifiers, which have very low optical nonlinearities. The linewidth broadening effect is so slow that SBS reaches threshold far before significant broadening of the laser linewidth. Figure (right) is a spectrum taken for fiber B at.

W CW fiber output power at 1178nm Although non-polarization-maintaining fibers are used in our amplifiers, the laser output can be adjusted to have a linear polarization better than 1:1 by a λ/ and λ/ waveplates pair because the DFB seed laser is linearly polarized. The polarization state is stable if the system is thermalized and isolated. (C) 8 OSA 1 July 8 / Vol. 16, No. 1 / OPTICS EXPRESS 193

5 A simple model for SBS limited fiber Raman amplifier is developed [9]. SBS is taken into consideration by seeding a single photon at the end of amplifier, which is then amplified by both Brillouin and Raman scattering. To reduce the calculation time, we first solve the partial differential equations for the Raman pump and signal only. After that, we integrate the SBS equation to determine if the SBS threshold is reached. Such process is valid for our case to simulate SBS limited maximum output power. Because SBS gain coefficient is hundreds of times larger than Raman gain coefficient, SBS threshold is well defined in both simulation and experiments. It is also valid for simulating the power curves because the SBS signal is negligible compared to Raman signal before the amplifier reaches SBS threshold. Laser linewidth is broadened when transmitting through the fiber. However, in the experiments, even at highest power the linewidth is still far below SBS bandwidth, so taking a constant SBS gain coefficient value in the simulation is valid. 6 3 numerical fit experimental data Unused Power [W] Position [m] Fig.. (left) shows a numerical fit to the fiber B results; (right) calculated signal power distribution inside the amplifier fiber for the case of fiber B at full power. In the model, there are three fitting parameters: Raman gain coefficient, SBS gain coefficient, and passive loss. By fitting to signal power curve, unused power curve, and maximum achievable power, these parameters can be determined. Figure (left) shows a numerical fit to the fiber B results. We find the Raman gain coefficients for Nufern 16XP and Corning HI16 fibers both are about.1 m -1 W -1, while SBS gain coefficients are.36 m -1 W -1 and.67 m -1 W -1, respectively. So in term of Raman amplification of narrow linewidth laser, Nufern 16XP fiber is better than Corning HI16. The difference might result from different drawing process or fiber doping composition. With the parameters provided by fitting the experimental data, we can determine optimum fiber length for given pump and seed power, and predict the performance very well. Fiber Raman amplifiers are usually not considered as a way to generate high power and narrow linewidth lasers, because it is thought that the fiber has to be very long for a fiber Raman amplifier, so that SBS will take place at rather low power and the linewidth will be broadened by Kerr nonlinearity. All these concerns are true. But the situation for SBS in an amplifying fiber is different from that in a passive fiber. Although the fiber has to be quite long for efficient Raman amplification, the power distribution of the amplified laser is very uneven. Figure (right) shows calculated signal power distribution inside the amplifier fiber for the case of fiber B at full power. The power distribution is very close to an exponential growth. Most laser power is generated in a short piece of fiber at the end of amplifier. This is the key to understand why a 1 m long fiber amplifier can generate.8 W, ~1 MHz laser without suffering much on SBS. So the idea is to amplify the narrow linewidth laser as fast as possible, which means to operate far below the pump saturation. That is the reason of the low efficiency. But the efficiency can be improved by using special SBS-free fiber, using multiple stage amplifiers (C) 8 OSA 1 July 8 / Vol. 16, No. 1 / OPTICS EXPRESS 1931

6 with isolators in between, and intra-cavity pumping, etc. We are working on these approaches right now. Our simulation shows the performance of narrow-linewidth fiber Raman amplifier is determined by the relative strength of Raman and SBS gain. The ratio of Raman to SBS gain coefficient of a fiber, g R /g SBS, can be defined as a figure of merit for building a narrow-line fiber Raman amplifier. For Nufern 16XP and Corning HI16 fiber, the values are.333 and.179, respectively. Detailed model, analysis, and simulation results will be presented in a future publication.. Summary and perspective In summary, we have obtained.8w, ~ 1MHz, 1178nm laser by Raman amplification of a distributed feedback diode laser in standard single mode fibers pumped by an 11 nm Yb fiber laser. More than 1% efficiency and 7 db amplification is achieved, limited by onset of stimulated Brillouin scattering. To our knowledge this is the narrowest linewidth achieved at this power level, with a fiber Raman amplifier. Most laser power is generated in a short piece of fiber at the end of amplifier. That is the reason why we can obtain ~ W narrow linewidth laser in a 1 m long fiber amplifier. The ratio of Raman to SBS gain coefficient of the fiber is recognized as a figure of merit for building the narrow linewidth fiber Raman amplifier. There is still much room to improve the performance. Many ways of SBS suppression have been proposed [9]. One direction is to broaden the laser linewidth, which is out of interest beyond 6-1 MHz, in the context of this work. Another direction is to broaden the SBS gain spectrum instead. This can be done by designing special fibers [1]. But the SBS gain spectrum can also be broadened artificially. For example, one can apply a temperature [11] or stress distribution along the fiber [1] to effectively broaden the SBS gain bandwidth. Furthermore, optically isolated multiple stage amplifiers and intra-cavity pumping scheme can be applied to increase the efficiency. (C) 8 OSA 1 July 8 / Vol. 16, No. 1 / OPTICS EXPRESS 193
