Abstract

In this paper a fiber laser plate, consisting of many fiber lasers in a form similar to an ordinary optical fiber plate, is described. The fiber laser plate, when end-pumped, can emit a laser light image corresponding to a 2-D transparency. The abrupt change of output intensity with excitation energy shows that the plate is attractive as an optical threshold device.
