Abstract

We present a fiber laser made in a single piece of conventional doped-core fiber that operates by combined feedback of the fundamental core mode LP ( 0 , 1 ) and the high-order cladding mode LP ( 0 , 10 ) . The laser is an all-fiber structure that uses two fiber Bragg gratings and a long-period grating to select the modes circulating in the cavity; the laser emits at the coupling wavelength between the core mode LP ( 0 , 1 ) and the counterpropagating cladding mode LP ( 0 , 10 ) in the Bragg gratings. This work demonstrates the feasibility of high-order mode fiber lasers assisted by long-period gratings.
