We demonstrate output pulse energies of from an erbium-doped fiber oscillator that contains only positive dispersion fibers and is mode locked by use of nonlinear polarization evolution and stabilized with a birefringent filter. The fiber oscillator operates at a repetition rate of with a central wavelength of . The positively chirped output pulses have a duration of and are compressed to . The large positive chirp of the output pulses and the steep side edges of the pulse spectrum indicate dissipative soliton operation.
