The coherent amplifying network laser is based on an array of thousands of active laser fibers coherently combined to generate high peak-power pulses at a high repetition rate. To achieve such a massive network, new combination architectures are presented here. They are based on implementing a spherical array of amplifying fibers, thus removing the need for… CONTINUE READING
