Paper Abstract

The output characteristics of linear cavity Yb-doped double-clad fiber laser have been studied theoretically and experimentally. Analytical expressions are evaluated for threshold pump power, output power and slope efficiency of the laser under steady state conditions. The expression of minimum of fiber length for designing a linear cavity Yb-doped double-cladding fiber laser has been given. Then, the Yb-doped double-clad fiber laser has been investigated experimentally. By exploiting various output coupler, output power, threshold pump power and the slop efficiency have been measured. Comparison between the experimental results and theoretical data has been performed. They are in good agreement with each other.
