Abstract

We report a 20 W linearly polarized, spectrally clean Yb-doped fiber laser at 1120 nm with an optical conversion efficiency of 54%. An excellent polarization extinction ratio of more than 23 dB is obtained using fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) polarization selection technique at all power levels. The results reveal that a Yb-doped fiber laser at 1120 nm could be a promising replacement compared to Raman fiber lasers.
