A systematic study on a compact, novel phase-locked multicore fiber laser device that is based on a truly all-fiber approach is presented. Supermode selection inside this monolithic fiber device is numerically analyzed, and multicore fiber lasers operating explicitly at the in-phase supermode are experimentally demonstrated.
