Abstract

High-power, high-efficiency ytterbium-doped solid-core photonic-bandgap fiber amplification at the long-wavelength edge of the Yb gain band is reported. Amplified-spontaneous-emission-free, 30W nonpolarized and 25W linearly-polarized 1178nm outputs have been achieved with <58% slope efficiencies. (C) 2009 Optical Society of America
