Abstract

We report the observation of transverse mode instability (TMI) in a pulsed single-frequency ytterbium-doped large-core fiber amplifier in which stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) is generated easily owing to the high peak power and narrow linewidth of the laser pulses. It was shown experimentally that the threshold of TMI is almost the same as that of SBS and that the suppression of SBS also increases the threshold of TMI, which indicates that the TMI originates from SBS in the fiber.
