    In this paper, we propose a multiwavelength erbium-doped fiber laser (MW-EDFL). The configuration of the MW-EDFL consists of several linear Fabry-Perot (FP) cavities and a master--oscillation-power-amplifier (MOPA). These linear FP cavities are partially overlapped and include several sections...

    In this work we demonstrate an integrated air-gap etalon that enables single wavelength operation and tuning ability for optofluidic dye laser. The integrated elastomeric air-gap etalon is controlled by air pressure. The chip was fabricated with polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) via replica molding....
