Paper Abstract

We present analysis of thermal effects in high-power Yb-doped double-clad fiber laser. We have performed simulations using heat and rate equations to find the core temperature distribution, and variation in population density of energy levels along the fiber length with pump power to access the power scaling feasibility in experimental configurations.
