Abstract
The next generation high bandwidth optical links from earth to space will requirement the development of new high power WDM sources. In this paper G&H present the latest results of their ongoing development of these sources. Namely the development and testing of a 50W optical fibre amplifier that operables across much of C-band is presented as well as a high power wavelength division multiplexer, designed to combine multiple high power amplifiers outputs into a diffraction limited beam.
