We report on a tunable multi-watt ytterbium-doped fiber laser bridging the gap from three-level lasing around 980 nm to true four-level lasing at 1100 nm. Wavelength-locking and -tuning was achieved by using an external volume-Bragg grating(VBG) as the cavity end mirror. The results are compared with detailed numerical calculations based on a spectrally resolved rate equation analysis, taking competing emission at other wavelengths into account.
