The rapid development of commercial multi-kW continuous-wave fibre lasers and high-peak power fibre lasers leads to a natural convergence toward high-average power high-peak power pulsed fibre lasers whose applications include marking, trimming, micromachining, precision drilling, welding and cutting while retaining the characteristics advantage of the fibre laser such as compactness, high-efficiency, reliability and maintenance-free operation.
