Abstract: Coherent beam combination of fiber laser array is an important technology for high-power output fiber laser systems. However, the coherent beam combination is influenced by temporal error, which always exists in the laser array. The coherent beam combination of pulse fiber lasers in the presence of temporal error is investigated in theory in this paper. The effects of pulse shape and temporal error on the coherently combined beam are studied. The characteristics of combined beam, i.e. pulse shape, peak power, far-field pattern and power in barrel (PIB) are calculated and analyzed when the pulse shapes (including square, triangle and sine) and temporal errors are different. It is revealed that for coherently combining square pulse lasers, the pulse shape of the combined beam changes acutely because of temporal error, and the far-field pattern and PIB change proportionally with temporal error increasing; for coherently combining triangle pulse lasers, the pulse shape and the peak power of the combined beam are acutely influenced by temporal error, and the far-field pattern and the PIB change acutely when temporal error is large. It is revealed that coherently combined beam of sinusoidal pulse lasers has good characteristics when two pulse laser with sinusoidal pulse shapes are coherently combined and the time delay between the two pulses is less than 10% of pulse duration.
