Abstract
In this paper, we show results of further brightness improvement and power-scaling enabled by both the rise in chip brightness/power and the increase in number of chips coupled into a given numerical aperture. We report a new chip technology using x-REM design providing a record ~340 W output from a 2×12 nLIGHT element® in 105 μm diameter fiber. These diodes will allow next generation of fiber-coupled product capable of >250W output power from 105 μm/0.15 NA beam at 915 nm. There is also an increasing demand for low SWaP fiber-coupled diodes for enabling compact high energy laser systems for defense applications. We have demonstrated 600 watts and 60% efficiency at 15C in 220 μm/0.22 NA fiber resulting in specific mass and volume of 0.44 kg/kW and of 0.5 cm3/W respectively.
