Fiber lasers have become one of the most important technologies in various industrial, medical and scientific applications. However, their vulnerability to environmental disturbances, such as vibrations and thermal fluctuations, limits the range of practical operations outside of the laboratory. In this paper, we report a simplified, all-normal dispersion, completely all-polarization-maintaining fiber integrated laser operating at 1030 nm. Our laser system employs a single pump laser diode and an all-polarization maintaining fiber pulse compressor capable of generating 700 fs pulses with a pulse energy of 0.45 nJ.
