With the inherent design tradeoff between the fundamental mode loss and higher order mode suppression, loss effects on system efficiency in different configurations were investigated. From these investigations it was seen that the slope-efficiency depends only on the total loss of the active fiber, and that when loss is present, the counter-propagating configuration has substantial advantages over the co-propagating case. In this thesis chirally-coupled-core fiber as the technological basis for the next generation of monolithic high power fiber laser systems has been established.21 2.2 Numerical Solutions of a Laser Diode Driven far Above Threshold During the Turn on Period with a Constant Bias ... 28 3.1 Schematic of Stage II 35 3.2 Raman Limit for Parabolic Pulse Formation 38 3.3 Schematic of Stage I 38 3.4anbsp;...
