Abstract (40-Word Limit): We study the rich multimode content of an ultra-low loss hollow core photonic bandgap fiber using two complementary techniques which allow us to investigate both short and long propagation distances. Several distinct vector modes are clearly identified, with evidence of low intermodal coupling and distributed scattering.
