We developed a compact fiber-coupled high-power diode-laser unit with optical output power up to 40 W cw, coupled into a multimode fiber with 600 micrometers core diameter and NA 0.22. This diode-laser unit is suitable for pumping solid-sate or fiber lasers as well as for material processing. Essential part is a novel beam-shaping system with compact size, high flexibility and low alignment requirements, which uses a pair of micro step-mirrors. The whole unit fits into a housing of approximately 110 X 100 X 90 mm.
