In this paper, we propose a novel all-fiber laser scheme with the output wavelength of 1565 nm based on a new Er-doped fiber design. A conventional commercially available pump source at 980nm (D=105μm, NA=0.2) is used for pumping. A high slope efficiency of 28% comparable with those in Er-Yb lasers was achieved owing to the utilization of the novel P2O5-Al2O3-SiO2 (PAS) glass as the host for Er3+ ions. A relatively low in-cavity fiber length (~14m) becomes possible owing to a small outer fiber diameter (80μm) and the use of a fiber taper (105μm to 80μm) for launching the pump.
