We present the demonstration of a compact linearly polarized low noise narrow-linewidth single-frequency fiber laser at 1014 nm. The compact fiber laser is based on a 5-mm-long homemade Yb3+-doped phosphate fiber. Over 164 mW stable continuous-wave single transverse and longitudinal mode lasing at 1014 nm has been achieved. The measured relative intensity noise is less than −135 dB/Hz at frequencies of over 2.5 MHz. The signal-to-noise ratio of the laser is larger than 70 dB, and the linewidth is less than 7 kHz, while the obtained linear polarization extinction ratio is higher than 30 dB.
