Abstract

The superiority of parabolic-index fibers over step-index fibers in delivering high-beam-quality light out of incoherently combined lasers is demonstrated numerically and experimentally. By utilizing the tapered fused bundlecombining approach and connecting it with delivery fiber, we point to an efficient, rugged, all-glass, integrated, and nearly brightness-preserving device that is capable of transmitting high-quality output beams.
