Cobweb microstructured optical fibers are often strongly multimode in the visible and near infrared regions. This may lead to a number of intermodally phase-matched nonlinear processes. Here we describe a process of nonlinear generation of very high-order UV modes by pumping such fibers with 100 fs Ti:sapphire pulses. Wavelengths as short as 260 nm are generated through a mechanism distinct from supercontinuum generation.
