Abstract
In this paper we review the damage mechanisms that need to be considered when building high power fibre lasers. More specifically we look at thermal issues, optically induced coating damage, bulk and surface damage thresholds of the host glass. We also discuss the reliability of tapered fibre bundles and Bragg gratings at these power densities.
