An actively mode-locked fiber laser (AMLFL) based on the hybrid gain of a dispersion-shifted fiber (as the Raman gain medium) and an Erbium-doped fiber (EDF) is introduced. The fiber Raman gain mechanism can effectively suppress the gain competition of an EDF, which usually results into the supermode noise in an actively mode-locked EDF laser. We experimentally demonstrated a stable AMLFL with the repetition of about 5 GHz, in which the supermode noise is believed to be suppressed by employing the hybrid gain medium.
