In this paper, we investigate power scalability of ytterbium-doped ultra large core photonic crystal fiber laser operating on the zero-line transition. We first report on an 80 microm core diameter ytterbium-doped rod-type photonic crystal fiber laser emitting up to 94 W in continuous wave regime when operating at 977 nm, which is to our knowledge the(More)
Recently, we showed that femtosecond laser induced " nanogratings " consist of thin regions with a low refractive index (Δn = −0.15), due to the formation of nanoporous silica surrounded by regions with a positive index change. In this paper, we investigate a wide range of laser parameters to achieve very high retardance within a single layer; as much as(More)
