Paper Abstract

Fiber cladding mode stripper is one of key devices in high-power fiber lasers and high-power transmission fiber. We report a new kind of mode stripper using quartz tubes with etched dots on the surface. We studied the waveguide property of the mode stripper both the dots on the outer surface and on the inner surface of the tube. Then we produced some quartz tubes using green laser for the experiments, which demonstrated that the new model strippers can reduce the cladding light and improve the axial temperature distribution obviously.
