Paper Abstract

Large-pitch fibers (LPFs) have enabled the current records for average power, pulse energy and pulse peak power in ultra-fast fiber laser systems. In this paper the working principle of LPFs, which is based on higher-order mode delocalization, is numerically analyzed paying special attention to thermal effects and index mismatch. An enhanced design concept is proposed with a reduced symmetry to improve the delocalization of higher-order modes. This enhanced design has been obtained by transferring the most important characteristics of spiral geometries to a common hexagonal lattice.
