The output characteristics of Yb3+-doped fiber laser at different temperatures are investigated. When temperature is increased from 13 to 95 Celsius degree, the center wavelength of laser changes from 1084.9 to 1096.3 nm, the output laser power decreases from 0.95 to 0.58 W, and the slope efficiency drops from 30.7% to 25.5%.
