In order to get high efficiency and high brightness laser output with single fiber coupled laser diode array, two laser diode array bars which have 40-W continuous wave (CW) output power at 980-nm wavelength are used in the experiment. The laser diode bars are collimated by two pieces of cylindrical micro lenses in the fast axis direction, and in the slow axis direction step mirrors are used to divide the beams of light to shape the output beam symmetrically. A piece of polarizing beam splitter cube is used to combine the two shaped beams. The focused output beam is coupled into a multimode fiber. More than 55-W output power is obtained from the fiber with core diameter of 400 microns and numerical aperture of 0.22, the total coupling efficiency is about 70% and the brightness is up to 10^(9) level.
