Output characteristics of a tunable fiber ring laser are studied both by theoretical modeling and by experimentation. Dependencies of laser output power on lasing wavelength, pump power, erbium doped fiber (EDF) length, output coupling ratio, and intra cavity loss are demonstrated by using a simple theoretical model. It is shown that a wide tunable range over 130nm (i.e.1500—1630nm) can be obtained through parameter optimization. As a result, the laser with a tunable range up to 100nm, high output power, and high signal to noise ratio in most of the tunable range has been achieved in experimentation. The experimental data are in good agreement with the theoretical modeling results.
