A novel room-temperature multiwavelength erbium-doped fiber (EDF) laser is demonstrated. Stable multiwavelength lasing at room temperature is realized by incorporating a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA)-based phase modulator in the laser cavity. The SOA is biased below the transparent point with a sinusoidal signal applied to achieve phase modulation, to suppress the homogenous line broadening of the EDF. Stable multiwavelength lasing with wavelengths up to 26 and wavelength spacing as small as 0.19 nm is demonstrated at room temperature.
