Abstract

AdValue Photonics propose a novel single-frequency fiber laser that will be able to deliver high-power, narrow-linewidth, shot-noise-limited laser beam at 1550nm for high-end RF photonics applications. It is based on AdValue Photonics unique high gain fiber technology. By the end of Phase I, we will demonstrate the feasibility of the concept, i.e., the capability of delivering a fiber laser with 100mW output power, 1kHz linewidth, and shot-noise-limited laser beam at 1550nm.
