Abstract

We present an approach for effectively combining high-power pulsed lasers based on a refraction displacement pulse combining technique. This approach allows for lasers combining with various repetition rates, pulse duration, polarization, output power, and wavelength. The maximum number of lasers that can be combined mainly depends on their repetition rate and pulse duration. This approach is a feasible way to combine a large number of high average power lasers while maintaining good beam quality.
