This is the first report of a cw tunable Raman laser in the 1.1-μm region of the spectrum. A prism-tuned fiber Raman resonator with a 650-m-long, low-loss small-core single-mode silica fiber was pumped by a 5-W cw Nd:YAG laser at 1.064 μm. With two separate resonator mirrors for the first and the second Stokes oscillation, we have obtained first Stokes oscillation tunable from 1.085 to 1.13 μm and second Stokes oscillation tunable from 1.15 to 1.175 μm.
