Fiber lasers have shown extraordinary progress in power level, reaching the kilowatt range. These results were achieved with large mode area fibers pumped with high power laser diodes coupled with bulk-optics. To enable the commercial development of these high power fiber lasers, we have demonstrated several All-Fiber components, which replace the bulk-optic interface in the present laser configurations. These components include multimode fused fiber bundle combiners with or without signal… CONTINUE READING
