Abstract

A Dammann grating is used as a spatial filter for a passive coherent beam combination (CBC) of three Yb-doped fiber amplifiers with an all-optical feedback loop. Using this diffractive-optics-based spatial filtering technique, we demonstrate CBC with 20 W output power, and the visibility of the far-field interference pattern is up to 88.7%. Measurements suggest that this approach is robust with respect to laboratory environment perturbations, and it can scale to high powers and large arrays.
