A distributed feedback fiber (DFB) laser operating at 1540 nm having more than 45 dB signal to amplified spontaneous emission ratio with a simple and compact structure is introduced. The DFB laser consists of 45 mm long highly Er-Yb co-doped phosphate glass fiber with a grating structure inside the gain medium. The laser emission is stable, but the power is still relatively lower due to un-optimized grating structure.
