We investigate configurations for upscaling the number of laser distributions that can be coherently added by means of intra-cavity interferometric combiners. Experimental demonstrations of coherent addition of 5 and 25 laser distributions are presented. Calculated results indicate that with our configurations upscaling to a large number of coherently added distributions is possible but strongly depends on the tolerances of the interferometric combiners.
