Abstract

Single-frequency fiber lasers have drawn intense attention for their extensive applications from high-resolution spectroscopy and gravitational wave detection to materials processing due to the outstanding properties of low noise, narrow linewidth, and the resulting long coherence length. In this paper, the recent advances of singlefrequency fiber oscillators and amplifiers are briefly reviewed in the broad wavelength region of 1-3 μm. Performance improvements in laser noise and linewidth are addressed with the newly developed physical mechanisms. The solution to achieving higher power/energy is also discussed, accompanied by the start-of-the-art results achieved to date.
