Paper Abstract

Ytterbium doped multicore fibers have been recently employed in the field of high power and Quasi-Gaussian beam lasers to design truly single-mode multicore fiber lasers. The special design of these fibers offers low bending loss even for compact high power lasers and amplifiers. Moreover, the Multi-core fiber amplifier possesses a large effective mode area which results in a significant decrease of the related nonlinear effects. In the paper, modal resolved group-velocity dispersion measurements in active multicore fibers are performed using time-frequency-domain white-light interferometry. A Mach-Zehnder-type interferometer with dual-channel detection in the spectral range from 0.4 μm up to 1.7 μm and a home-made supercontinuum source are used. Temporally resolved spectrograms recorded at distinct delay positions enable the detection of interference fringes for the equalizationwavelength. The group-velocity dispersion can be derived by applying a Sellmeier polynomial fit to the wavelength dependent differential group delay function. The dispersion parameters for several LMA fibers are investigated over a broad spectral range of about 1.3 μm.
