Abstract

The conversion of the FM-to-AM effect induced by intermodal interference in the broadband large-mode-area (LMA) fiber laser was first investigated theoretically and experimentally. The numerical simulation results show that the spectrum transfer functions are different at different positions of the LMA fiber end face owing to the intermodal interference, so the output broadband pulses are different. We attain the similar results in the experiment when measuring the output pulse with the single mode fiber sampling oscilloscope. Whereas there is no amplitude modulation for the output pulse when measured by the bulk detector owing to the orthogonal characteristic of the eigenmodes.
