The most important components for application in high-power all-fiber lasers and amplifiers are, most of all, power combiners, but also mode field adaptors. This paper summarizes recent achievements in the area of development and fabrication of high-power passive fiber components. The principles of operation and basic design and fabrication criteria, which have to be taken into account while designing the aforementioned components, are explained in detail. The most recent impressive achievements are summarized and described. View Full-Text
