26 April 1999 3-W saturation power polarization maintaining 1060-nm ytterbium fiber amplifier
Author Affiliations +
Super compact, 3W power, 1060 nm polarization maintaining, diode-pumped ytterbium fiber amplifier with extinction ratio greater than 17 dB and wall-plug efficiency greater than 14% have been developed. Performance of the device fits requirements of free-space and satellite optical communications applications.
