As new applications require more laser power, components make the difference between success and failure for fiber optics laser and delivery systems. Specialty fiber components are an increasingly important part….The key to unleashing power is to use larger core fibers and pumping schemes to distribute thermal load and to increase the power threshold of nonlinear effects. The building blocks of fiber laser and delivery systems are components that can manipulate light in such a way as to link different parts of the laser with minimal loss.
