Abstract  A mode-locked ytterbium-doped rod-type fiber laser with 85 μ core diameter is developed based on the nonlinear polarization evolution in an all-normal-dispersion ring cavity, in which a uniaxial birefringent plate is used as the spectral filter. Average power up to 16 W is obtained at the repetition rate of 58 MHz, and the pulse duration is compressed to 182 fs with a grating-pair compressor. The output laser pulses show very good beam quality and power stability.
Keywords:  diode pump      rod-type fiber      femtosecond mode-locking
