Abstract

We report the production of stable, coherent, and same-phase states in arrays of fiber lasers. Provided that proper interactions between the lasers are present, arrays will spontaneously self-organize into stable coherent same-phase states. There is no need for active control. Power scaling, power spectra, spatial interference fringes, and temporal data all support this conclusion.
