Abstract

We present a new theoretical scheme for a high-power Er 3 + -doped fiber amplifier assisted with a long period grating (LPG). This cladding-pumped amplifier is predicted to generate up to 2.25 kW of continuous-wave output power at 1531 nm with a power conversion efficiency of 0.83 . This device consists of an Er 3 + -doped cladding and an undoped core pumped with a high-power laser at a wavelength of 1480 nm . The LPG imprinted in the fiber core transfers a weak input signal propagating in the core mode of a single-mode fiber into a predetermined cladding mode, dramatically increasing the effective mode-area of the signal and the threshold powers for unwanted nonlinear effects such as stimulated Raman and Brillouin scattering. Depending on the choice of the cladding mode used for amplification, a second LPG imprinted at the end of the Er 3 + -doped fiber may be used to transfer the amplified signal into a large core output fiber with high efficiency, providing a high-quality output beam in a fundamental mode.
