Power in the Bucket (PIB) is a key index to describe the quality of Laser. Actually it is hard to precisely measure it. In this work, the numerical simulation on ideal Gauss beam and flat beam with different apertures were carried out. The results show that the problem can be overcomed by guaranteeing the transmission of the aperture. And 97% is a suggested value according to the analysis.
The multi-tone amplification for the purpose of mitigating stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) effect is investigated. Different wavelengths and power ratio are considered in the simulation model to achieve optimal results. The numerical simulation results indicate that SBS is effectively suppressed in a fiber amplifier with an output from 53.7W to 96.9W by utilizing this approach.
The output power of a narrow line-width laser is usually limited by the Stimulated Brillouin Scattering effect. In Master Oscillator Power Amplifier structures, multi-point pump could rearrange the gain distribution along the fiber, leading to the suppression of the Stimulated Brillouin Scattering effect with maintained amplification efficiency. A theoretical model concerning 100W-level fiber amplifiers is proposed. Stimulation is performed to analyze the amplification process of the laser signal and Stimulated Brillouin Scattering. The results demonstrate that the power of scattering light decreases from 3.2W to 6.8mW (with two-point pump) indicating the effectiveness of this new technology in Stimulated Brillouin Scattering suppression.
