Paper Abstract

We describe methods for time-multiplexing of high power diode lasers. This means that high power laser pulses emitted from a set of laser diodes are guided on a common optical path via an optical multiplexer with the aim to build a high beam quality diode laser. We examined pulsed operation of laser diodes and developed elements for a digital multiplexer suited for this special task. The technology developed until now will allow a device multiplexing 4 laser diodes with a power of 16W and a beam quality of one laser diode. Time-multiplexing of 8 laser diodes for a device with 30W should be feasible as well.
