An ultrashort-pulse, mode-locked ytterbium-doped fiber laser has been developed. The group-delay dispersion was compensated with a grating pair inside the cavity. A broad spectrum from 1000-nm to 1120-nm was obtained without intracavity compensation of third-order dispersion. A 0.7-nJ pulse as short as 28.3 fs was obtained with a repetition rate of 80 MHz. To our knowledge, this is the shortest pulse reported from an Yb fiber laser oscillator.
