Paper Abstract

This paper presents the results of an extensive trade study of various techniques for combining multiple laser diode beams. Each of the candidate concepts was tested against a stringent set of criteria. As a result of this study a Dichroic Reflection Combiner was chosen for further development into flight qualifiable hardware.
