Strongly pumped fiber lasers are analyzed, based on a rate equation model. Examples include Nd 3+-doped and Yb 3+ -doped fiber lasers, with distributed Bragg reflector mirrors at either end. Approximate analytical and quasi-analytical expressions are shown to be in excellent agreement with the exact numerical solution of the rate equations, and both agree well with recently published experimental data.
