Fiber-laser pumping: Diode technology advances fiber-laser pumping

Improved power scaling of fiber lasers is being enabled by advances in high-brightness pump-laser diodes—specifically, higher efficiency of the pump semiconductor material itself that allows more power per emitter, and innovations in coupling the diode energy into the target delivery fiber.
