Abstract
Master Oscillator Power Fiber Amplifier lasers (MOPFA) lasers have been available for several years but very short nanosecond pulses along with low brightness, high repetition rates and high average power has only been achieved recently. The different types of pulsed fiber lasers are described. These new fiber laser designs have characteristics that allow them to challenge conventional laser technology in many application areas. Some data on industrially relevant ablation rates is included and other applications are also presented.
