Paper Abstract

Monolithic fanned-out amplifier lasers (acronym: FOAL), are capable of producing high optical power, greater than 1 watt. They operate single wavelength and can be collimated to generate a nearly Gaussian beam useful for applications requiring an inexpensive compact source of coherent radiation. Examples are space communication, frequency doubling, thermal writing, optical sensing, optical interconnection, and optical computing.
