Paper Abstract

A tapered fiber bundle is one of the leading approaches to coupling pump light into cladding-pumped fibers. This article compares it to other pump coupling schemes, and describes the tapered fiber bundle in detail. In addition tapered fiber bundles which maintain the polarization state of the signal and transform the size of the mode are described.
