We present a low noise single-frequency and single-polarization distributed Bragg reflector fiber laser at 1083 nm by using a 1.8 cm long newly developed ytterbium-doped phosphate single mode glass fiber. The maximum output power is more than 100 mW with a slope efficiency of . The signal to noise ratio is higher than 61 dB and the laser linewidth of less than 2 kHz is estimated. The obtained relative intensity noise for frequencies of over 4.0 MHz is less than , which approaches the shot noise limit. The achieved linear polarization extinction ratio is more than 30 dB.
