Abstract

See full text

A system and method for increasing the fiber coupling efficiency of diode lasers is disclosed. The diode laser has a diode pump source for generating a force to pump a laser and a double clad fiber directly coupled to the diode pump source instead of coupling to the multimode fiber. The pumped laser is transmitted directly through the double clad fiber thereby increasing the coupling efficiency of the diode pump source. At least one connector is utilized for connecting the double clad fiber and the diode pump source. The connector has at least one adhesive placed in contact with an acrylate coating and not in contact with a glass cladding of the double clad fiber to avoid cladding stripper and fiber splice thereby increasing the fiber coupling efficiency.
