Abstract

A high-efficiency fiber laser at 1018 nm using homemade Yb-doped phosphosilicate fiber is demonstrated. The fiber shows blueshifted emission spectrum compared to Yb-doped aluminosilicate fiber, and is considered favorable for the short wavelength Yb-doped fiber laser. With a 7 m gain fiber, up to 22.8 W output at 1018 nm is achieved with an optical efficiency of 53%. The amplified spontaneous emission at 1030 nm is suppressed to 50 dB below the 1018 nm laser. This work shows that highly-efficient fiber laser at 1018 nm can be obtained with Yb-doped phosphosilicate fiber.
