Paper Abstract

A linearly-polarized, 977 nm pulsed laser capable of 1 kW, 15 μJ output has been demonstrated. The laser is based on Yb3+-doped fiber technology, is core pumped and has a monolithic, all-fiber design. A 13 dB polarization extinction ratio was observed at the maximum measured output power. The output performance of the laser is pump-limited and shows no sign of non-linear effects at the demonstrated output powers. The laser emission is inherently near-diffraction limited due to the single-mode nature of the fibers used.
