Abstract

We demonstrate a cladding-pumped single-mode plane-polarized ytterbium-doped fiber laser generating 633W of continuous-wave output power at 1.1μm with 67% slope efficiency and a polarization extinction ratio better than 16dB. The laser is end pumped through both fiber ends and shows no evidence of roll-over, even at the highest output power, which is limited only by the available pump power.
