The tunable fiber laser with high tuning resolution in the C-band is proposed and demonstrated based on a digital micromirror device (DMD) chip and an echelle grating. The laser employs a DMD as a programmable wavelength filter and an echelle grating with high-resolution features to design a cross-dispersion optical path to achieve high-precision tuning. Experimental results show that wavelength channels with 3 dB-linewidth less than 0.02 nm can be tuned flexibly in the C-band and the wavelength tuning resolution is as small as 0.036 nm. The output power fluctuation is better than 0.07 dB, and the wavelength shift is below 0.013 nm in 1 h at room temperature. View Full-Text
