Abstract

We generate as much as 1.6W of continuous-wave 1550nm single-longitudinal-mode output from a cladding pumped Er–Yb codoped phosphate fiber laser. This power is to our knowledge among the highest in single-longitudinal-mode fiber lasers. The narrowband fiber Bragg grating output coupler is demonstrated to be an effective element for providing the single-longitudinal-mode selection.
