Abstract

We present the amplification of a narrow-bandwidth signal at a wavelength of 1018 nm to a power exceeding 600 W with a stable output polarization state. The beam showed an excellent, nearly diffraction-limited beam quality. The high-power output could be realized using an in-house designed and fabricated fiber with a core-cladding diameter ratio of 32/260, ultra-low NA of 0.041, and ring-up doping. A seed source with high amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) suppression was also required, which was realized by a double-pass pre-amplifier with 13 W output power.
