Paper Abstract

Single-clad and double-clad Yb:YAG crystalline fiber waveguides (CFWs) have been prepared with Adhesive-Free Bonding (AFB®) technology. By using a fiber coupled laser diode as pump source, a single-mode laser with near diffraction limited beam quality M2=1.02 has been demonstrated in a double-clad CFW. The laser output power and efficiency are 13.2 W and 34%, respectively. In a single-clad CFW, core pumping was used. The laser output has top-hat beam profile. An output power of 28 W and a slope efficiency of 78% have been achieved respectively.
