Paper Abstract

The design and optimization of high-power fiber lasers and amplifiers requires a detailed understanding of several important physical processes, both linear and nonlinear. The influence of bending on the overlap of the propagating mode as well as its resistance to deleterious nonlinear effects such as self-focusing must be accurately predicted. To this end we have developed a number of models, both analytic and numerical, that allow us to treat these effects in detail.
