Abstract
The Phase I effort will show the feasibility of reaching 10+kW average power in Yb-doped, photonic waveguide amplifiers emitting near-diffraction-limited output beams. We will show that this innovative technology permits us to avoid nonlinearities and thermo-optical fracture, while producing near diffraction-limited output in the multi-kilowatt regime. By the conclusion of the Phase I effort, we will have addressed the major risks involved in power-scaling the technology to 10+kW.
