Abstract
The temperature sensitivity of a tapered Yb-doped fiber laser is numerically investigated. The laser rate equations are modified to analyze the output characteristics of the tapered fiber laser in the continuous wave regime under different temperature conditions. Numerical analysis shows that for different pump schemes, high sensitivity can be achieved when the pump power is reduced to close to the threshold value. Our results are reproducible and contribute new information to the development and optimization of tapered Yb-doped fiber lasers and temperature fiber laser sensors.
