A multiple wavelength laser source is generated by a Brillouin seed signal and a compacted hybrid Raman / bismuth-based erbium doped fiber amplifier (Bi-EDFA) in a linear cavity. The gain media of the Raman/Bi-EDFA is only a 2.15 m Bi-EDF pumped bi-directionally by two laser diodes (LDs). In comparison to all of the conventional multiple wavelength sources generated via using the same Bi-EDF and LDs, the proposed multiple wavelength source has much more number of lines due to using Raman and EDF amplification.
