LLNL’s system uses diffractive optical elements or “phase plates” to convert low-power pump laser light from a circular-core fiber to a form that is easily coupled into and amplified by a rectangular ”ribbon” fiber. A second set of phase plates located beyond the ribbon-fiber amplifier reformats the high-power output into a beam that is optimized for target delivery. Image credit: LLNL.
