Abstract

A new method to obtain linear polarization operation by Brewster's angle-polished fiber end is demonstrated. By using the special polarization operation technique together with introducing a narrow-linewidth fiber grating into the laser cavity, a cladding-pumped linear polarization and single-transverse-mode (M<sup>2</sup><1.1) Yb-doped fiber laser with narrow linewidth whose full-width at half-maximm (FWHM) is less than 0.2 nm, is obtained in a simple configuration. The output power is up to 10 W which is continuouswave output at 1085 nm, and the slope eciency is 63% with respect to the coupled pump power and 75% with respect to the absorbed pump power, respectively. The measured 21-dB polarization extinction ratio does not degrade with the output power. The simplicity of such an approach is highly beneficial for a number of applications, including the use of a fiber laser for the nonlinear wavelength conversion (especially for the intracavity frequency doubling) and for the coherent and spectral beam combination.
