Abstract

We demonstrate a compact, room-temperature, cw Yb 3 + : Y 3 Al 5 O 12 silica ( Yb 3 + : YAG silica) fiber laser grown by the codrawing laser-heated pedestal growth technique. A slope efficiency of 76.3% was achieved from a 7 mm Yb 3 + : YAG silica fiber, corresponding to an extracted power of nearly 1 W cm . A laser side-mode suppression ratio of 70 dB was obtained with a 3 dB linewidth of 0.15 nm . Additionally, the propagation loss and emission cross section were determined by analyzing the lasing thresholds and slope efficiencies.
