Paper Abstract

Coherent beam combination of fiber laser arrays plays an important role in realizing high power, high radiance fiber laser systems. The stochastic parallel gradient descent (SPGD) algorithm is a newly developed optimization method using the technique of parallel perturbation and stochastic approximation and it is expected that this algorithm can reduce the cost and complexity of a high power fiber laser system when incorporated in its beam combination scheme. In this paper, a numerical simulation model about the fiber laser beam combination system is then established based on beam-quality-metric optimization method. The SPGD algorithm is introduced and used to realize the beam-quality-metric maximization, leading to the maximum output power of the fiber laser system. The results of numerical simulation indicate that the far-field beam intensity optimization method using SPGD algorithm can realize coherent beam combination of fiber laser arrays effectively.
