Paper Abstract

We report a high performance, fully monolithic 40 μm core, Yb-doped photonic crystal fiber amplifier module. The developed fused combiner allows us to couple 6 pumps of 50 W at 976 nm and 5 W of signal at 1064 nm in the PCF amplifier. We then produced up to 210 W of average power at 1064 nm which is the highest power ever delivered by a fully monolithic PCF amplifier. The module is entirely thermally controlled in a rugged package, and has run more than 25 days at > 100W average power with an excellent peak to peak power stability < 1%.
