Results of investigation of transient two-wave mixing via dynamic population gratings in Yb-doped fibers with saturable absorption are reported. The recorded gratings are characterized by submillisecond formation times and at wavelength lambda = 1064 nm need cw recording light power of 1 - 10 mW scale. What is important for different applications, the dynamic gratings were found to be predominantly of a phase type with an admixture of a significantly weaker amplitude component only. As in Er-doped fibers, the amplitude grating component proved to be essentially inferior to the theoretical estimation based on the fiber optical density and saturation power.
