Abstract
We report an experiment of incoherent beam combining based on a 7×1 all-fiber signal combiner with output power up to 6.08 kW. Properties of transmission efficiency and beam quality are analyzed by beam propagation method. Based on the calculative results, a 7×1 all-fiber signal combiner is fabricated. The handle power capacity is tested with average transmission efficiency of 98.9% and beam quality of M2≈10.
