Abstract
A method of pumping lasers built on the basis of double-clad neodymium-ion doped fibers is presented in the paper. Couplings were realized by asymmetrical couplers built with a multimode PCS (pumping) fiber and a double-clad (pumped) fiber. Special software for designing such asymmetrical couplers was elaborated. It allows us to choose appropriate parameters of the coupler's components, enabling to obtain a maximum pumping power, introduced by the purpose-built coupler.
