We demonstrate a broad-band wavelength-tunable Bismuth Oxide-based Erbium-doped fiber (Bi-EDF) laser covering both the conventional wavelength band and the long wavelength band. It features single frequency and single polarization oscillation; the former is obtained by making the cavity length short and incorporating an intracavity narrow-band fiber Fabry-Pe´rot filter, and the latter is achieved with a sigma laser configuration using nonpolarization maintaining fibers. Tuning over 90 nm (1520-1610 nm) is achieved by utilizing the broad gain bandwidth of Bi-EDF amplifier.
