Paper Abstract

We report the results of a numerical analysis of the pump absorption in a double-clad fiber amplifier based on a beam-propagation method. Various inner-cladding shapes are compared in terms of absorption efficiency. This incldues the circular shape iwth an offset core, the hexagonal and D-shaped fibers, a circular fiber with two truncations and a polarization-maintaining circular fiber.
