9 March 2007 Narrow linewidth coherent beam combining of optical fiber amplifier arrays
Author Affiliations +
The first theory for two novel coherent beam combination architectures that are the first electronic beam combination architectures that completely eliminate the need for a separate reference beam are presented. Experimental results demonstrating the coherent addition of a 3 by 3 array of fiber amplifiers with a total phase locked power of 100-W are also described.
