We present a widely adjustable high energy square pulse laser operating in DSR in a passively mode-locked F8L using dual Er:Yb co-doped double clad amplifiers. By manually controlling the power of each amplifier, the pulse width can be varied in a range of 360 ns without generating multi-pulsing instabilities. To ensure that DSR would dominate the modelocking mechanism, we use a 1.5 km standard single-mode fiber in the cavity. At a maximum pumping power, the laser generated square pulses with 416 ns duration and an average output power of about 1.33 W with a repetition frequency of 133 KHz corresponding to a record pulse energy of 10 μJ.
