Paper Abstract

We have developed an integrated Tm:fiber master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) system producing 100 W output power, with sub-nm spectral linewidth at -10 dB level, >10 dB polarization extinction ratio, and diffraction-limited beam quality. This system consists of polarization maintaining fiber, spliced together with fiberized pump combiners, isolators and mode field adaptors. Recent advances in PM fibers and components in the 2 μm wavelength regime have enabled the performance of this integrated high power system; however further development is still required to provide polarized output approaching kilowatt average power.
