Abstract

We investigate the use of a seven-cell hollow-core photonic bandgap fiber for transport of CW laser radiation from a single-mode, narrow-linewidth, high-power fiber laser amplifier. Over 90% of the amplifier output was coupled successfully and transmitted through the fiber in a near-Gaussian mode, with negligible backreflection into the source. 100 W of power was successfully transmitted continuously without damage and 160 W of power was transmitted briefly before the onset of thermal lensing in the coupling optics.
