Abstract
We report on an integrated all-glass pump combiner for ytterbium-doped high power fiber lasers. The combining of multiple pump fibers with an active double clad fiber for high power amplification was successfully achieved by splicing them to a dichromatically coated planar convex lens. The measured coupling efficiency of such a combining scheme was typically in excess of 80%, with 86.5% achieved in maximum. Theoretical analysis is discussed in order to get optimized parameters and to consider the scaling of this type of coupler to higher average powers.
