Abstract

We propose and investigate theoretically a new concept for single-large-mode amplification in double-clad active fibers. The concept is based on exploiting a very small fiber core, guiding only a single transverse mode that has large overlap with a doped active cladding. We show that the guided mode can have very large area with good modal discrimination. This simple structured fiber can be used in an 'all-fiber' configuration. We further investigate the sensitivity to small refractive index changes of the doped area and to bending of the fiber. Our proposed fiber concept could lead to fibers with very large mode area with advantages over current commercial fibers.
