Everyone is in for a treat today, because we have a special topic under the special topic section, so this is a special, special topic, which is special (if you haven’t already been clued into that)! Some of the most exciting work in fiber optics is happening when you push fiber lasers to the high power regime. Because of their unique thermal handling abilities, fiber lasers and amplifiers are currently being explored for their potential to replace Ti:Sapphire lasers as the industry-standard high power system. Read on to find out more about the problems high-power fiber systems need to overcome, and the present solutions!
