In this paper, the development of loop mirror multi-wavelength Brillouin fiber laser utilizing semiconductor optical amplifier and fiber Bragg grating is successfully demonstrated. A multi-wavelength BFL structure employs a single mode fiber that acts as the gain medium, while the fiber Bragg grating act to reflect the signals and semiconductor optical amplifier is used to amplify the signal are employed to produce multiple channels. The implementation of difference parameter for semiconductor optical amplifier driven current, Brillouin pump power, Brillouin pump wavelength and length of single mode fiber, plays an important role in producing the multiple channels. The highest number of channels which is 15 achieved once 9 km of SMF length, semiconductor optical amplifier current at 800mA and low Brillouin pump power at -12 dBm are utilized in the laser structure. Furthermore, the implementation of semiconductor optical amplifier and reflectivity of fiber Bragg grating in Brillouin fiber laser structure gives a better performance in producing the multiple channels.
