We present a broad-band (40 MHz) injection-seeded erbium-doped fiber ring laser with a low finesse cavity. Broad-band operation is achieved by seeding an arbitrary number of longitudinal modes in this cavity. This fiber laser is advantageous because it has the potential to substantially suppress stimulated Brillouin scattering for lidar applications.
