    Recent advances in efficiency and mounting technology have lead to new sets of parameters for commercially available high power diode lasers (HDL). Still, these advances have to be proven by extensive long-term aging tests (LAT). The results of these give both the safety margin for operating todays HDL as well as hints towards further improvement. By statistical means clear information on reliabil... View full abstract»

    This presentation gives an emphasis on the development of all-fiber chirped pulse amplifier (CPA) sources. It describes both Yb and Yb-Er based CPAs, where powers of 20 kW in picosecond pulses recompressed in up to 110 m of air core photonic band gap fibre. The problem of dispersion slope, leading to incomplete recompression of the stretched pulses are also described, as well as the simple compres... View full abstract»

    Cladding-pumped fibre lasers are becoming increasingly attractive for high power generation due to their high efficiency and immunity from thermal effects. However, due to their small core size and long device length, pulse energies are rather limited. In contrast, conventional 'bulk' solid-state lasers offer the prospect of much higher pulse energies, but suffer from detrimental thermal effects w... View full abstract»

    One of the major limitations to scaling diode laser power is the waste heat in the semiconductor, which can be addressed by improvements in power conversion efficiency. Here we report on the rapid advancement of conversion efficiencies across all commercial pump wavelengths from near- to mid-infrared. The most critical improvements have been the reduction in the diode laser operating voltage throu... View full abstract»

    With the attributes of small size, maintenance-free operation, and high thermal and electrical efficiency, fiber lasers have the potential to change every industry and discipline they encounter and challenge currently held views on how to make things, how to repair things, and how to destroy things. Born out of the telecom revolution, the outstanding attributes of rare-earth doped fibers as a gain... View full abstract»

    Digital printing is undergoing a revolution brought about by semiconductor lasers. Although discrete lasers have been used in printing for many years, developments in semiconductor integration technology now allow massively parallel arrays of lasers to be fabricated on a single chip. These developments are bringing about a step change in laser functionality and performance for the most demanding p... View full abstract»
