AbstractWavelength tunable L-Band polarization-locked vector soliton fiber laser based on single-walled carbon nanotube saturable absorber (SWCNT-SA) and chirped fiber Bragg grating (CFBG) is presented for the first time. By inserting the SWCNT-SA into an all-fiber laser cavity, polarization-locked vector solitons (PLVS) are obtained. The CFBG glued on a plastic cantilever is used for wavelength tuning. By mechanically bending the cantilever, the center wavelength of the PLVS pulses can be continuously tuned from 1606.8 nm to 1614 nm, while the polarization-locked state is kept stable. The properties and dynamics of PLVSs are experimentally investigated and stable PLVS operation including high-order PLVSs is demonstrated. The pulse width and repetition rate are 7.06 ps and 11.9 MHz at a wavelength of 1611 nm, respectively. This work demonstrates the feasibility of using polarization-insensitive CFBG to realize wavelength tuning in PLVS fiber laser.
