Phase modulators and splitting network on Si PIC for coherent fiber beam combining

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Coherent beam combining (CBC) of fiber lasers provide an attractive mean of reaching high output laser power by scaling up the available energy while keeping fiber intrinsic advantages of compactness, reliability, efficiency, and beam quality. In CBC architectures, the power of a master oscillator (MO) is divided into N fibers that are amplified individually. The phase perturbations between channels can be measured using various techniques [1-3] and are corrected by individual phase modulators placed on each fiber before the amplification. In this Communication, we present a Silicon PIC integrating a 1:16 channels splitting network and thermal phase modulators array with low electrical power consumption and a bandwidth compatible with CBC requirements.
