Paper Abstract

This paper reviews different fiber design approaches for high power lasers. First, we discuss the conventional step index profile design and methods for achieving single mode operation in high power lasers such as bending, helical core fibers and Yb dopant profile designs. Then we present new design approaches for reducing the SBS through profile and glass composition designs. Finally, we describe fiber designs to achieve single polarization and at the same time to mitigate the SRS effect.
