Paper Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrate the performance of self-fabricated passive fiber components in a laser and amplifiers setups operating at ~1.55 μm wavelength. Three different types of power combiners and one mode field adaptor were fabricated using three-electrode Large Diameter Splicer System (LDS System). Application of pump and signal power combiners in two configurations is presented, including (5+1)x1-SM (i.e. with single mode signal fibers) and (6+1)x1-LMA (with large mode area signal fibers). We also demonstrate pump power combiner in 7x1 configuration with single mode output fiber and mode filed adaptor which connects single mode fiber with large mode area type fiber. All those components were successfully applied in two high-power systems, a three-stage amplifier MOPA setup and a high-power amplifier with medium-power signal source.
