Abstract

We present a new low-nonlinearity fiber of mode-filtered large-core fiber for flexible beam delivery of intense pulsed light aiming at multi-photon endoscopy application. A multimode fiber of a large core diameter (20 μm) equips a mode filtering means in the middle of the fiber link to suppress the high-order modes selectively. A large effective core area of ~200 μm 2 has been achieved at 0.8-μm and 1.0-μm bands. This is 8 times larger than the core area of a conventional SMF used for those spectral bands. Various advantages of our large-mode area fiber will be demonstrated and discussed in this report.
