Advances in High Power Fiber Lasers for Defense Applications

Open Access Open Access


Fiber laser development for defense applications fall into two primary areas: spectrally broad, and spectrally narrow fiber lasers. The former are useful for tactical, close-range applications, and are used as single lasers, or as multiple lasers which are incoherently combined. The latter are being developed for long-range applications, and narrow linewidth is required for either coherent or spectral combining of multiple beams. In this paper, we discuss the recent advances in both types of fiber lasers.
