Abstract:

The key contributor to size and weight of a multi kW fiber laser array is the final power amplifier. Utilizing Optical Engines multi fiber coupled laser diode stacks and large diameter fiber pump combining technology, an ultracompact multi kW fiber power amplifier having a size < .01m3/kW and weight < 3kg/kW will be designed and validated, showing scaling ability to 6kw in a single stage. BENEFIT: kW class fiber amplifiers and lasers for the foundations for many applications requiring these high powers including directed energy, industrial material processing and high power remote sensing and long range optical communications.
