Abstract
We present a novel approach for the combination of high power multimode diode lasers. The design considered to ensemble several pigtail multimode diode lasers in a radial position on a circular thin disk (the lid) which has a hole-concentrator at the center point. The reflect mirror which is in charge of concentrating the beams at one point and overlapping them without mutual spatial interference is a paraboloidal mirror which is sprayed by a silver thin reflectance film and it is physically covered by the lid. We simulate this device by using commercial software for optical design and we will show the complete analysis of the ray traces as well as the coupling efficiency of the system.
