We report a widely tunable single-frequency linear-cavity erbium-doped fiber laser covering both the conventional wavelength band (C-band) and the long wavelength band (L-band). The laser has low threshold, high slope efficiency and high signal-to-noise radio. A large tuning range of over 100 nm is realized by optimization of the active fiber length.
