Abstract

We demonstrate a higher-order-mode fiber-based platform, to achieve low-loss, bend-resistant, mode-coupling-free light transmission over meter-length fibers, in a record Aeff of 2100 µm2. Its nonlinearity tolerance is demonstrated by compressing fiber-laser pulses to 64 fs, yielding 52-kW peak powers.
