Abstract
Based on a pair of step-mirrors for beam rearranging we coupled the emission of three high-power diode laser arrays into an optical fiber of 800 micrometer diameter. We compressed the fast axis collimated beams of three diode lasers in respect to their fast axes by means of a step prism and symmetrized the beam parameter product by reordering the radiation which is focused into a fiber then. By simple optimization a coupling efficiency of 70% can be obtained.
