Title High Power Fiber Lasers.
Publication Date Aug 2012
Media Count 45p
Personal Author B. Samson J. Ballato M. Bass M. Richardson
Abstract This program focused on new materials and fiber designs towards the realization of 100+ kW class eye-safe fiber lasers based on the following guiding principles: large mode area, single mode, purity of polarization state, minimization of nonlinear effects, compatibility with all-fiber pumps, and high temperature buffer coatings. Over the duration of this program the most significant findings are discussed below in the following sections: (1) Gain guided index anti guided fiber lasers; (2) High temperature fiber coatings; (3) Tm doped fiber lasers 4. Tm doped Photonic Crystal Fiber (PCF) lasers.
