Abstract
A new type of multi-clad rare-earth doped silica fiber was designed, prepared and tested for the power scaling of high power fiber lasers in the 1 .1 tm wavelength region. By means of a dedicated laboratory setup a maximum output power of more than 1 .300 watts with excellent spectral and beam behavior was achieved. The fundamental investigation of the energy transfer processes and of the fluorescence lifetimes of different Nd:Yb co-doped has been studied. Such fiber-lasers were tested in the laboratory at several materials (plastics, metals, glass) in the fields of material processing and micro-marking, respectively.
