Abstract
In this Phase II proposal Azna corporation proposes the development of a high power (16W), highly efficient (27% wall plug efficiency) communications amplifier which operates near 1560 nm. We present a development path towards improving the current state of the art for diode pumped high power fiber amplifiers at 1.5 ¿Ym in terms of power and wall plug efficiency by at least a factor of 3. This program is intended to demonstrate an amplifier architecture capable of achieving Transformational Communications program goals for specific power and efficiency using technology that is compatible with space flight applications.
