A 100 W-class all-fiber linearly-polarized single-mode fiber laser at 1120 nm with an optical pump efficiency of 50% was demonstrated. Linearly polarized output with a polarization extinction ratio of 15 dB is achieved by a cavity that selects both wavelength and polarization. Macro pulse operations with square shaped pulses from 100 μs to 1 ms are achieved without relaxation oscillation. The exact wavelength of pump diode is found to be crucial for amplified spontaneous emission and parasitic oscillation in high power 1120 nm fiber laser. Effects of inhomogeneous spectral broadening and temperature dependent absorption are proposed to explain experimental observations.
