A Multiwavelength Brillouin/Erbium fibre laser which operates in long-wavelength band (L-band) is demonstrated with an approximate comb spacing of 10 GHz. The laser configuration consists of a long EDF to enable the L-band amplification and two 3-dB couplers to take a portion of the generated BEFL signal and re-inject it into the SMF to seed a cascaded BEFL line in the same direction as the first BEFL line. 20 lines including the anti-Stokes are obtained with the maximum Brillouin pump and 980 nm-pump power of 8.9 mW and 92 mW, respectively.
