Abstract

Optical fibers with large diameter cores having a negative index step from cladding to core combined with an adequately large gain coefficient in the core provide near-optimal mode properties for fiber lasers delivering robust single transverse mode operation with very large mode areas. Basic properties and simple design formulas for such fibers are presented.
