Abstract

The sine–cosine single-frequency dithering technique for active phase locking of fiber amplifiers is presented for the first time to our knowledge. It has twice the phase control speed as the single-frequency dithering technique. Detailed theoretical development has been presented and the relevant experiment has been done. In the experiment, nine 10 W level fiber amplifiers are tiled into 3×3 array and the total output power is about 100 W. The sine–cosine single-frequency dithering algorithm is run on a signal processor based on a field-programmable gate array for phase control on the fiber amplifiers. When the phase control system is in a closed loop, the fringe contrast of far-field intensity pattern is improved by more than 90% from 21% in an open loop, and the residual phase error is less than λ/20.
