Abstract

An analytical model for self phase modulation in Yb-doped fiber laser (YDFL) describing output spectrum and its broadening with increasing power has been developed. Spectral measurements in continuous wave (CW) cladding-pumped YDFL have proved the validity of the model demonstrating hyperbolic secant shape of the spectrum and linear increase of the line width with power in 1–12 W range. At lower powers, spatial hole burning and line self-sweeping effects become important and define the lower limit for the line width.

(a) Output spectra for different output power: experimental points and their fitting by function [Eq. (5)], inset-log plot; (b) line width versus output power in CW regime (squares). Solid and dashed lines correspond to theory [Eq.( 7)] and linear fit of the experimental data, respectively. Circles correspond to instant width in self-sweeping mode. Arrow shows estimated line width for spatial hole burning (SHB) effect.
