N2 - Operational and environmental stability of ultrafast laser systems is critical for their applications in practical biophotonics. Mode-locked fiber lasers show great promise in applications such as supercontinuum sources or multiphoton microscopy systems. Recently, substantial progress has been made in the development of all-fiber nonlinear-optical laser control schemes, which resulted in the demonstration of highly stable monolithic, i.e., not containing any free-space elements, lasers with direct fiber-end delivery of femtosecond pulses. This paper provides an overview of the progress in the development of such all-fiber mode-locked lasers based on Yb-fiber as gain medium, operating at the wavelength around 1 $\mu$m, and delivering femtosecond pulses reaching tens of nanojoules of energy.
