Paper Abstract

The availability of fiber combiners has been essential to the wide deployment of robust fiber lasers in the market. Some standard parts have emerged in larger volume, but new designs involving both different processes and different fiber configurations are being proposed to the market, offering novel or improved specifications. We will present some of those new designs involving true signal fiber feed-throughs and better return loss and isolation properties. The new fabrication process also allows more latitude in selecting the number of input pump fibers and is independent of the signal fiber's internal structure.
