Paper Abstract

A laser diode-based multilaser system of extremely high brightness is presented. The high brightness of the system is achieved by summing anomorphous radiation of individual powerful diode lasers with an original optical design SuperFocus to give an isomorphous output beam. Application of wavelength feedback and injection locking effect to enhance the performance of multilaser diode systems is studied. It is shown that the injection locking using a fiber laser as a master is one of the ways to significantly improve the performance of such systems. A very narrow-band high-power optical output and, hence, a significant increase in the spectral brightness of the multilaser system are achieved by an optimum combination of the parameters of the master laser and the slave multilaser system.
