Paper Abstract

We present results of the research and development of double-clad Yb3+-doped fibers for high-power fiber lasers. The quality of the fabricated fibers and optimization of reflecting Bragg gratings allowed us to demonstrate fiber lasers with a quantum efficiency close to 90%. These fiber lasers were used in Raman converters emitting at various wavelengths.
