High-power nonlinearity of optical fiber power meters for pump lasers at 980 and 1480 nm



Igor Vayshenker, Shao Yang, Ralph Swafford


We describe the nonlinearity of optical fiber power meters at wavelengths of 980 and 1480 nm up to 2 W. We also describe two measurement systems, that are based on the triplet superposition method.
