Paper Abstract

In recent years fiber pulsed fiber lasers have began to challenge diode pumped solid state lasers in performance. In particular double-clad fiber lasers and amplifiers with mJ energies and near diffraction limited beam quality are gaining respect for applications such as materials processing, laser radar and remote sensing. Frequency conversion of single-polarization fiber lasers further increases the application space to such as underwater communications, underwater imaging, semiconductor processing and gas sensing. Yb fiber lasers have to date produced several mJ pulse energy and several MW peak power but, largely due to materials issues Er based fiber laser systems underperforms in comparison. Relevant technologies are reviewed.
