This data set contains numerical and experimental time series from an erbium-doped fiber laser (EDFL). The response of the laser emission is controlled by the intensity of a digital signal added to the modulation, which allows the generation of various logical operations Taking advantage of the dynamic richness of this type of laser and its use in telecommunication systems, the dynamic response is analyzed when the system is perturbed by a digital signal. The emission behavior of the system is controlled by the intensity of the digital signal, making it possible to obtain various logical operations. The data obtained include the automation of a digital oscilloscope, an arbitrary waveform generator, and the diode laser pumping the erbium-doped fiber.


Steps to reproduce

The experimental setup used in this work consists of a 1560nm EDFL pumped by a 977nm laser diode (LD). The laser cavity consists of an erbium-doped fiber about 88cm long with a core diameter of 2.7 $\mu$m and two fiber Bragg gratings (FBG1 and FBG2) with reflectivities of 100% and 95.88%, respectively. All components are interconnected with a single-mode fiber. The laser diode is controlled by the pump controller (LDC). For all experiments performed, the pump current is set to $145.5$mA ($20$nW). To control the dynamics of the laser and to achieve the different logic gates, both the harmonic modulation and the bias signal are injected into the pump diode via a function generator (WFG) and a digital interface, respectively. The automated equipment includes DC power supply "Bk Precision 1760A" Digital Oscilloscope "Agilent DSO-X 3102A" Digital Arbitrary WaveForm Generator "Tektronix AFG 3102" Diode Laser Controller "ThorLabs ITC510"
