Paper Abstract

We report the first experimental demonstration of an optical fiber supporting a fundamental mode with flattened intensity profile around 1050 nm. The design has been defined through intensive numerical simulations by paying a special attention to the constraints imposed by the fabrication process. We show that the fabricated fiber presents a single-mode behaviour.
