Abstract
1.1 W cw has been achieved from a 10-amplifier coherent array with an electrical to optical conversion efficiency of 28%. The amplifiers were injected with 20 mW from a master oscillator via a single-mode polarization-preserving optical fiber. Approximately 90% of the output power from the amplifier array was locked to the master oscillator's frequency.
