A novel feedback control method by tuning reflectivity was demonstrated for stabilizing mean-wavelength of a double-pass backward (DPB) superfluorescent fiber source (SFS) under 60Co irradiation. The mean-wavelength drift was compensated with increasing dose up to 22 krad, suitable for the applications in the low Earth orbit. The rate of output power loss induced by irradiation could be decreased by 33% when the feedback control was working. The linewidth of the DPB SFS was 16 nm, 1.6 times larger than the reported one by adding an output edge filter. With such a larger linewidth the angle random walk (ARW) of an IFOG can be more reduced.
