abstract

The design and optimization of high-power fiber amplifiers requires a simulation tool capable of including a wide range of effects simultaneously, including mode distortion and loss due to bending, spatially-dependent saturable gain, guiding from arbitrary index of refraction profiles and self-focusing. In addition, the nonlinear effects are power dependent and thus will distort the pulse shape. We have constructed a numerical model to address these issues and serve as a platform for data analysis and system optimization.
