We experimentally demonstrated a single-mode laser at 1056 nm with Nd-doped phosphate glass microstructured optical fiber (MOF), which was fabricated with conventional stack-and-draw method. The laser action was observed from a Fabry-Perot cavity formed by placing two dichroic mirrors of ∼100 and 85% reflectivity, to the two end facets of MOF. Pumped by CW laser diodes (LDs) at 808 nm, the MOF laser yielded a maximum output power of 8.5 mW and a slope efficiency of 2%.
