Abstract

We demonstrate a MHz wavelength-swept fiber laser with diffraction-free and self-healing properties at the bio-favorable wavelength window of 1.0 μm. This ultrafast wavelength sweeping at a high chirp rate is all-optically realized through a newly-designed dispersive fiber that can provide a dispersion amount up to −1.7 ns/nm. It is 8 times larger than the standard single-mode fiber at this window and by adopting a double-pass configuration, the dispersion amount can be further increased to about −3.5 ns/nm, which is 23 times larger than what has previously been demonstrated. Its beam profile, a 2D Airy function, shows no obvious diffraction within a propagation distance of 2 meters and furthermore, the self-healing property is also verified by blocking the main lobe of the laser beam. This is the first wavelength-swept fiber laser equipped with diffraction-free and self-healing properties at the bio-favorable window. We believe that such effort can enable real-time data processing and a deeper penetration for the high-speed spectroscopic applications in the turbid environment.

Figures (7)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 The schematic diagram of the self-healing wavelength-swept fiber laser. SMF: single-mode fiber. OIM: optical integrated module. PC: polarization controller. Yb: ytterbium doped fiber. DCF: dispersion-compensating fiber. CPM: cubic-phase modulator.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 The dispersion and loss characteristic of the new DCF at 1.0 μm. It should be pointed out that the measurement range of the GVD is limited by the tuning range of the signal source.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 (a) The optical spectrum of the mode-locked ultrashort pulse. (b) The optical pulse train right before chirping by the new DCF. Inset shows the pulse width measured by an autocorrelator.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 (a) The wavelength-swept pulse train chirped by a standard SMF at 1.0 μm, i.e., 5-km Nufern 1060-XP in this case. (b) The wavelength-swept pulse train chirped by the new DCF. The arrow indicates an increasing loss from longer wavelengths to shorter ones, which is consistent with loss characteristic shown in Fig. 2, i.e., the blue curve.
Fig. 5
Fig. 5 (a) The schematic diagram of double-pass wavelength sweeping for GVD doubling. (b) The pulse trains before and after the double-pass wavelength sweeping. The weak narrow pulse is the direct reflection from port ① to ③ of the input fiber circulator, i.e., without chirping by the new DCF. (c) The mapping between frequency and time domains after double-pass wavelength sweeping.
Fig. 6
Fig. 6 (a) The temporal interferogram train after the interferometer. (b) The comparison between the OSA optical spectrum and single-shot OSC temporal waveform.
Fig. 7
Fig. 7 (a) The beam profiles at different propagation distance away from the Fourier plane of the focal lens, i.e., 0, 100 and 200 cm. (b) The self-healing performance of the wavelength-swept laser.
