Title: Single-Polarisation, Single-Frequency, 2 cm Ytterbium-Doped Fibre Laser

Abstract

A single-polarisation, single-frequency, ytterbium-doped silica fibre laser has been demonstrated in a 2 cm linear cavity. The output power reaches 35 mW with an optical signal-to-noise ratio greater than 65 dB. A polarisation-maintaining fibre Bragg grating is used as the polarisation-dependent reflector to generate the single-polarisation output with the polarisation extinction ratio greater than 20 dB. The laser works stably for two hours under laboratory conditions.
