Abstract

We demonstrate a monolithic continuous wave (CW) fiber laser source at 1070 nm, producing 2 kW laser power with a very narrow spectral width (75GHz) and near-diffraction-limited beam quality (M2<1.4). The laser consists of a CW fiber laser oscillator and two double cladding fiber amplifiers in the master oscillator-power amplifier configuration. The master oscillator is a distributed Bragg reflected fiber laser, producing 6W laser power with 25GHz spectral width. The two double cladding fiber amplifiers were developed to enhance the laser power up to 200 and 2050W, respectively. The slope efficiency of the main amplifier reaches 84.8%. Under the full power output, the 3 dB spectral width and 20 dB spectral width of the laser emission spectrum was 75GHz and 1.2 nm, respectively.
