  • Based on the principle of self-organization, coherent combining of two fiber lasers in Michelson cavity was demonstrated experimentally. According to this principle, the corresponding physical phenomena and advantages of Michelson cavity were reasonably explained. Some key factors affecting output powers in Michelson cavity, such as design of collimating lens, reflectivity of output coupler, and the balance of two pump power, were discussed both in theory and experiment. It provides a theoretical basis for optimization of Michelson cavity, improvement of the final output power and suppression of the power leakage in destructive channel.

Abstract: Based on the principle of self-organization, coherent combining of two fiber lasers in Michelson cavity was demonstrated experimentally. According to this principle, the corresponding physical phenomena and advantages of Michelson cavity were reasonably explained. Some key factors affecting output powers in Michelson cavity, such as design of collimating lens, reflectivity of output coupler, and the balance of two pump power, were discussed both in theory and experiment. It provides a theoretical basis for optimization of Michelson cavity, improvement of the final output power and suppression of the power leakage in destructive channel.
