We report test data for narrow linewidth fiber amplifiers in a compact modular package and in all-fiber format with power up to 2.5kW and 2.0kW in non-PM and PM fiber configuration respectively for various scientific and advanced applications. Both fiber amplifiers have been pumped directly by laser diodes and have 3m output delivery cable. The fiber amplifiers have more than 35% wall-plug efficiency. Measured M2 values are ≤ 1.1. The amplifier data are discussed for different input linewidth and test conditions.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
