Paper Abstract

The side-coupled cladding-pumped fiber has many advantages in terms of system design, ease of pump injection, signal extraction and power scalability over traditional double cladding fiber. We demonstrate a 290-W all home-made side-coupled cladding-pumped fiber laser with the slope efficiency of 67.8%. To the best of our knowledge, the slope efficiency is the highest for the published high power fiber laser based on the DSCCP fiber. The slope efficiency of the home-made side-coupled cladding-pumped fiber amplifier is mainly limited by the background loss, pump light coupling and pump light absorption. The results show that the power ratio of signal light to residual pump light is near 20 dB. The pump light is not absorbed enough that the slope efficiency can be further improved by optimizing the amplifier structure.
