In this study, bismuth-doped fiber lasers operating at the wavelength of 1179 nm with an optical efficiency of up to 28% are realized. The fiber gain upon 1-¿m pumping declines, while the unsaturable absorption increases with increasing the small-signal absorption. We conclude that up-conversion and excited-state absorption are responsible for limiting the efficiency of such lasers.
