Numerical studies of the nonlinear operation of a fiber distributed feedback laser are presented. An approximate formula relating smallsignal gain to the output power and the parameters of the structure for this kind of lasers is derived. Characteristics revealing saturation effects for weak as well as strong coupling regions are presented for Nd:YAG fiber lasers. An optimal coupling strength providing maximum output power for given pumping rate of the laser medium is calculated.
