Paper Abstract

We describe advances in the development of high-power diffraction-limited lasers for single- mode fiber-coupled sources. The development of the tapered amplifier has led to the realization of a monolithic MOPA diode laser, which provides up to 3 W cw of single-spatial- mode output power. We further describe the implementation of the MOPA in fiber-coupled architectures that provide up to 1.2 W cw coupled into a single-mode optical fiber and some of the optical considerations unique to devices based on tapered amplifiers.
