We demonstrate a continuous-wave (CW) single-frequency narrow-linewidth laser at 1552 nm with an output power of 83 W using a master-oscillator power amplifier configuration. A seed from an all-fiber distributed feedback-laser with a linewidth of 13 kHz was polarization scrambled and boosted through a chain of amplifiers in an all-fiber configuration. The last amplification stage consisted of a highly efficient cladding-pumped large-core erbium-ytterbium co-doped fiber which helped increase nonlinear thresholds.
