Cladding pumping is a technique whereby high power broadstripe diodes and diode bars are employed as efficient pump sources for double-clad rare earth doped single-mode fibres. Output powers ranging from several hundred milliwatts to several tens of watts have been attained with this technique. Important application areas include telecommunications, medicine, laser marking and laser radar
