Abstract  A 135 mW single-frequency distributed Bragg reflector fiber laser at 1.95 μm was obtained based on a Tm:YAG ceramic-derived all-glass fiber. The fiber laser achieved an optical signal-to-noise ratio of ~ 77 dB. Moreover, the threshold and linewidth of the single-frequency laser were measured to be 15.4 mW and 4.5 kHz, respectively. In addition, the measured relative intensity noise was less than -140 dB· Hz-1 at frequencies of over 10 MHz. The results show that the as-drawn Tm:YAG ceramic-derived all-glass fiber is highly promising for ~ 2 μm single-frequency fiber laser applications.
