Currently, the increase of output power of Yb-doped large mode area photonic crystal fiber lasers, fundamental for many practical industrial applications, is mainly limited by thermal effects, which negatively affect the beam properties. In this work the influence of the inner cladding characteristics on the guiding properties of Yb-doped symmetry-free… CONTINUE READING
