An Ytterbium-doped double-cladding fiber laser is demonstrated. The threshold of the pump power is about 1.1W. The maximum output power is 9.9W at the wavelength of 1045nm when the pump power is 15.3W. The slope efficiency is around 70%. We discuss an exact numerical model, with a shooting method to solve the power steady-state equations. Numerical results about the output power as a function of the pump power are in good agreement with measurements.
