  • Laser Beam Combining Methods

    by Andrew Motes ...
    There are several reasons why it is sometimes necessary to combine several laser beams into one: (1) some lasers, such as fiber lasers, have good beam quality but limited output power, (2) it allows for graceful degradation, (3) it makes the overall system more modular, and (4) it distributes the cooling load. This book summarizes and describes all the known methods for combining laser beams from ... Read more
