Who are the U.S. manufacturers of fiber-based high-power laser (HPL) systems?

DSIAC staff provided a bibliography of seven U.S. manufacturers of fiber-based high-power laser (HPL) systems along with a brief summary of their work; technical details related to wavelength, power, etc.; and related publications. Additionally, DSIAC staff referred the inquirer to a technical report produced under a DSIAC core analysis task (CAT). The CAT study contains discussions of 24 U.S. Government high-power laser related development efforts, some of which are focused on development of fiber laser-based systems.
