Random fiber laser (RFL) based on random distributed feedback and Raman gain has earned much attention in recent years. In this presentation, we demonstrate a powerful linearly polarized RFL with spectral adjustment, in which the central wavelength and the linewidth of the spectrum can be tuned independently through a bandwidth-adjustable tunable optical filter (BA-TOF)... As a result, the central wavelength can be continuously tuned from 1095 to 1115 nm, while the full width at half-maximum (FWHM) linewidth has a maximal tuning range from ~0.6 to more than 2 nm. This laser provides a flexible tool for scenes where the temporal coherence property accounts, such as coherent sensing/communication and nonlinear frequency conversion. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of a high power linearly polarized RFL with both wavelength and linewidth tunability. read more
