Paper Abstract

Self-organized coherence between fiber lasers has been reported both via all-fiber 2x2 directional coupler trees and in spatially multi-core fibers. We have taken this a major step forward, coupling together a number of independent fiber lasers to obtain a spatially and spectrally coherent far field, with no active length, polarization, or amplitude control. The near field output comes from a spatial array rather than from a single fiber, making this approach scalable to extremely high power.
