Abstract
Tapering will raise the signal loss in an end-pumped (N+1)×1 type combiner. In this paper, the Thermally Expanded Core (TEC) technique is used in the signal loss optimization experiment with the tapering ratio of the pump combiner is 0.6. The experimental results indicate that the coupling efficiency of the 1.55μm signal light increases from 81.1% to 86.6%, after being heated 10 minutes at the homo-waist region of the tapered signal fiber with an 8mm wide hydroxygen flame. Detail analysis shows that the TEC technique can both reduce the loss of the LP01 mode and the LP11 mode in the signal fiber.
