A Survey of Beam-Combining Technologies at for Laser Space Power Transmission t W Summary Laser beams of high optical quality and high average power (~ 1 MW) are t es._ntial for effective and practical power transmission in space.
Such laser beams could be obtained by combining multiple laser arrays. i In this survey, a review of various beam. Compared with coherent beam combining, the technique of spectral beam combining has the great advantage of not requiring mutual temporal coherence of the combined eliminates some important technical challenges and makes it much easier to obtain stable operation at high power levels.

The recent research progress of coherent beam combining of high power fiber lasers is reviewed. Key technologies like coherently combinable fiber laser, phase control of multiple beams and beam tilling are specially analyzed. Prospects for single coherently combinable high power fiber amplifier, beam tilling and target-in-the-loop control for propagation in real atmosphere are by: Single laser elements will always have an upper limit of power.

High power narrow linewidth sources find numerous applications such as coherent beam combining, LIDAR, and laser guide star.
Power scaling of narrow linewidth source through fiber amplifiers is usually limited by nonlinear processes, specifically due to the onset of stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS).
