Abstract

We investigate the feasibility of applying an anti-resonant guiding mechanism in an all-solid anti-resonant fiber (AS-ARF) to achieve a large mode area (LMA) and single mode for high-power fiber laser applications. A novel, to the best of our knowledge, AS-ARF with nonuniform rods is proposed to enhance the single-mode property and enlarge the mode area. The numerical results show that the core diameter can expand to 57, 80, and 100 µm at the wavelengths of 1.064, 1.55, and 2 µm, respectively. The loss ratio of the lowest loss of higher-order modes to the loss of the fundamental mode can exceed 1000, 550, and 860 at the wavelength of 1.064, 1.55, and 2 µm; thus, robust single-mode operation can be ensured. Besides, the fiber can also be adapted to bent condition under certain heat load. These indicate that the proposed AS-ARF with nonuniform rods is a great candidate as an LMA fiber for high-power fiber lasers.
