Paper Abstract

In the paper, a Yb:YAG single crystal fiber is used for the first time to amplify week image signal. It was longitudinally pumped by a fiber-coupled laser diode with a maximum power of 150W at 940 nm. The image amplifier provided low noise and high gain amplification. A spatially uniform amplification gain of up to 10.2 dB at wavelength of 1030 nm was obtained.
