Abstract
The performance of high-power pump-laser modules is strongly influenced by their thermal properties. In this paper we discuss the optimization of the device performance with respect to thermal properties, output power, wavelength stability, and device reliability using the example of our newest pump-laser generation that has been developed and qualified to support the high-end market of erbium-doped fiber amplifiers. A comparison of device properties obtained from modeling and measurements is presented at each design step. We report on the performance of fiber Bragg grating-stabilized telecom-grade modules yielding 600 mW fiber-coupled light output power.
