  • Possible designs of high power fiber lasers are discussed in this paper related to the future power delivery system in laser material processing factories. The performance of high power fiber lasers is analyzed using basic equations and optical parameters of laser cavities. High efficiency operation of 73% was demonstrated by clad pumping scheme using homogeneous absorption regime of Nd3+-doped rectangular double clad fibers. The possibility of solar pumping without any concentrator was… CONTINUE READING
