Abstract
We present a novel numerical model for an ytterbium-doped fiber ring laser. A comprehensive numerical model based on an iterative solution of propagation rate equations is used to analyze the impact of various laser variables. The dependence of laser output power on pump power, ytterbium-doped fiber (YDF) length, and emission wavelength has been investigated, with the aim to optimize laser parameters with respect to emission wavelength and output power. Close to emission wavelength, the optical signal-to-noise ratio is higher than 65 dB. We also investigate that the initial oscillation is damped oscillation, and the laser output become steady-state output one millisecond later.
