Abstract

We report a monolithic single-end-pumped all-fiber laser oscillator with 1.5 kW power output operating at 1070 nm. The laser scheme design and fiber parameter selection are based on our theoretical analysis through one rate equation model consisting of changing pump wavelengths. The laser oscillator is pumped by 49 fiber-pigtailed 915 nm laser diodes with power of 50 W each through two stage combiners. The measured laser power is 1520 W at the pump power of 2054 W, and the corresponding optical-to-optical efficiency is 74%, in agreement with numerical simulation. Stimulated Raman scattering is observed when the laser power reaches 1030 W and the power ratio of Raman power is 4% at maximum output power. The experimental results show that the beam qualities represented by the M2 factor are less than 1.2 at all pump power levels.
