Paper Abstract

We report on an eye safe fiber laser generating >5 Watts of average power at 50 kHz packaged in a cylinder measuring 6" in diameter and 3.75" in length to show compatibility with advanced seeker concepts. To our knowledge, this represents the highest average power per unit volume from an eye safe pulsed fiber laser generating multi-Watts of average power.
