Beam pump combination for fiber lasers

Paper Abstract

An optical pumping device consisting of pigtailed diode lasers and a paraboloidal mirror is presented. The pigtailed diode lasers are mounted on a circular plate in radial position in front of the mirror, and the reflected beams are then launched into a 200-μm-diam undoped silica fiber with silicone cladding, with up to 75% coupling efficiency. The implementation of the device is simple and can be used to scale the power in fiber laser systems.
