An effective approach to enhance the performance of a room-temperature multiwavelength fiber ring laser is presented. By introducing self-lasing feedback in conventional phase-modulation-based multiwavelength fiber ring lasers, the number of lasing lines is increased and the differences among the lasing lines are diminished. Stable multiwavelength lasing with numbers of lasing lines up to 17 within the 3-dB spectral bandwidth and with wavelength spacing as small as 0.2nm is achieved.
