We report an efficient method for generating a 2 micron laser based on an optical parametric oscillator (OPO). It uses a long piece of a newly developed double-clad ytterbium-doped fiber (YDF), which is obtained by doping multi-elements of ZrO2, CeO2 and CaO in a phosphoalumina-silica glass as a gain medium. The efficient 2 micron laser generation is successful due to the presence of partially crystalline Yb-doped ZrO2 nano-particles that serve as a nonlinear material in a linear cavity configuration and high watt-level pump power. Stable self-wavelength double lasing at 2122 nm with an efficiency of 7.15% is successfully recorded. At a maximum pump power of 4.1 W, the output power is about 201 mW.
