Abstract

A new coupling method is proposed for high-power laser-diode-array (LDA) end-pumped large-aperture amplifiers. In this method, stacks in the LDA are distributed on a spherical surface, and a hollow duct is placed after them. Both numerical simulations and experimental research have been done for this method. All results show that high coupling efficiency and uniform pumping field can be obtained simultaneously using this method.
