We report a novel fiber laser operating at 850-nm band by using semiconductor optical amplifier and fiber grating. The laser system is stable, compact, and the operating wavelength can be tuned continuously from about 851 to 854 nm for Cs atomic clock system by stretching the fiber grating. An output power up to 20 mW is obtained with a signal-to-background ratio beyond 30 dB.
