In this work, an exact numerical analysis of an end-pumped continuous-wave (CW) double-clad fiber laser with linearcavity design has been intensively carried out based on a set of propagation rate equations including loss coefficients. Following the theoretical analysis of the rate equations describing pump coupling, fiber end-face cleaving (air reflection), splice points, combiner, fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) and scattering losses, a comparison has also been made between the numerical predictions and the experimental results due to a typical single-mode ytterbium (Yb)-doped silica rectilinear fiber laser.
