Abstract

A skew-angle cladding-pumped tunable Yb-doped fiber laser is presented. The laser was tunable over more than 30nm, from 1022 to 1055nm, by employing a volume Bragg grating in a retroreflector configuration as one of the cavity delimiters. Output powers in excess of 4.3W were recorded with a spectral bandwidth of 5GHz and an M2 value below 1.3 over the whole tuning range.
