Abstract

We describe an all-fiber ytterbium-doped laser followed by a double-stage ytterbium-doped double-clad fiber amplifier of 10-W output power for helium pumping. Different cavity designs are investigated with the goal of achieving high-power multimode emission at 1083 nm, wavelength tunability over the helium absorption bands, and linewidth envelope control over the range 1–3 GHz. We point out the domains with unstable output power and discuss their origin.
