We perform a detailed quantitative numerical analysis of a partially coherent quasi-cw fiber laser on the example of a high-Q normal dispersion cavity Raman fiber laser. The key role of precise spectral performances of fiber Bragg gratings forming the laser cavity is clarified. It is shown that cross-phase modulation between the pump and Stokes waves does not affect the generation. Amplitudes of different longitudinal modes strongly fluctuate, obeying the Gaussian distribution. As the intensity statistics is noticeably nonexponential, longitudinal modes should be correlated.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We present an experiment in which intracavity optical power spectra of a Raman fiber laser are precisely measured both in the forward and in the backward propagation directions near the cavity mirrors. The statistical properties of the intracavity Stokes field are found to be very different before and after reflection on the cavity mirrors. The influence of both the dispersion and the spectral filtering actions of fiber Bragg grating mirrors are discussed.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We develop a theoretical framework for modeling of continuous wave Yb-doped fiber lasers with highly nonlinear cavity dynamics. The developed approach has shown good agreement between theoretical predictions and experimental results for particular scheme of Yb-doped laser with large spectral broadening during single round trip. The model is capable to accurately describe main features of the experimentally measured laser outputs such as power efficiency slope, power leakage through fibre Bragg gratings, spectral broadening and spectral shape of generated radiation.
