Paper Abstract

A new few-mode fiber design taking advantage of a micro-structured core consisting of 19 secondary cores embedded in a pedestal geometry is presented. This design offers the possibility of precisely tailoring the rare earth ion distribution in the core in order to manage the differential modal gain. An optimized configuration of an erbium-doped few-mode fiber supporting 10 modes in the C-band with a theoretical low gain excursion is designed and realized. Preliminary optical characterizations of this fiber are presented.
