    16  MHz wavelength-swept and wavelength-stepped laser architectures based on stretched-pulse active mode locking with a single continuously chirped fiber Bragg grating

    We demonstrate a novel high-speed and broadband laser architecture based on stretched pulse active mode locking that provides a wavelength-swept and wavelength-stepped output. The laser utilizes a single intracavity 8.3 meter chirped fiber Bragg grating to generate positive and negative dispersion, and can be operated with or without an intracavity fixed Fabry–Perot etalon to generate wavelength-swept and wavelength-stepped (frequency comb) outputs, respectively. Using a four-path delay line at the output, we achieved 16.3 MHz repetition rates and a 62 nm lasing bandwidth centered at 1550 nm. Single-sided double-pass coherence lengths of 1.25 mm for the wavelength-swept ...
