Abstract

Dual-wavelength radiation around 1044nm and 1070nm has been generated directly from a cladding pumped Yb-doped fiber laser. Outputs of the two wavelengths exhibit sustained relaxation oscillation with anticorrelated dynamics. Modeling of the transient built up of the free-running laser shows the two-wavelength behavior can be attributed to the existence of two gain peaks of Yb-doped fiber under intermediate pump conditions.
