Abstract: A simple, stable and inexpensive dual- output port widely tunable semiconductor optical amplifier-based fiber compound-ring laser structure is demonstrated. This unique nested ring cavity enables high optical power to split into different branches where amplification and wavelength selection are achieved by using low-power SOAs and a tunable filter. Furthermore, two Sagnac loop mirrors which are spliced at the two ends of the ring cavity not only serve as variable reflectors but also channel the optical energy back to the same port without using any high power combiner. More than 98% coherent beam combining efficiency of two parallel nested fiber ring resonators is achieved over the C-band tuning range of 30 nm. Optical signal to noise ratio (OSNR) of + 45 dB, and optical power fluctuation of less than ± 0.02 dB are measured over three hours at room temperature.
