Phase-matched third-harmonic generation is demonstrated in a germanium-doped optical fiber. Green light at 514.4 nm is generated in an LP03 mode when a pump field at 1543.3nm is launched into the fiber in the fundamental LP01 mode. The phase matching is achieved for a particular combination of the germanium doping concentration and the fiber core diameter.
