A continuous-wave pumped, all-fiber optical parametric oscillator (OPO) around 1523 nm based on the mixing interaction of parametric process and stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) effects are investigated in this paper. We study and give the detailed analysis of the generation and output characteristics of all-fiber OPO with the influence of the SRS effects. Experimental results show that there exists the saturation output effect for this kind of OPO due to the coexistence of first order SRS effect, second order SRS and the optical parametric oscillation. The maximal output power of OPO is about 100 mW as the pump power reaches 1.4 W. Furthermore, a depolarized L-band super-continuum light source from 1570 nm to 1640 nm based on the combined interaction of parametric process and SRS effects can also be obtained.
