29c and d). Care has to be taken if endcaps are attached to PCFs, because the length of the collapsed region might influence the beam quality. 4. 3 Pump Coupler As the demand for integrated high-power laser systems has increased, much research efforts have been focused on packaging and integration of laser systems into single units including pumping and amplifying. 29 Fused silica block spliced to a passive transport fiber (a) and a close up of the splice region including the concave fillet weld (b); close up of a PCF showing a collapse of the air-cladding 700 mm in length (c), and improved splice with a collapse of <100 mm (d).

18 Temperature increase within the fiber’s cross section for different thermal loads. Heat dissipation from the coating to the ambient air also involves convective and radiative mechanisms. 18 for a fiber with an outer diameter of 850 mm, a pump core of 500 mm, and a core of 30 mm, as well as an acrylate coating with a thickness of 150 mm. The heat load is varied from 100 to 300 W mÀ1 but it is assumed that the heat is efficiently removed on the outer surface to keep a constant temperature. Nevertheless, the outer temperature will not change the gradient inside the fiber and so a temperature increase in the fiber’s core above 100 K is obtained for such geometry and at such heat load levels.

Below this threshold, the near field profile and the measured beam quality out of the amplifier fiber appears to be single mode. However, above the threshold an apparently random temporal change in the mode content accompanied by a sudden decrease in beam quality can be observed. A reduction to a power level below threshold results again in a stable fundamental-mode output beam, thus, no hysteresis is observed. Furthermore, the average power does not drop at this threshold and can actually be further increased with subsequent beam quality degradation.
