Abstract

Absorption of an incoherent pump in a double-clad fiber amplifier is analyzed in the paraxial wave approximation. Different inner cladding shapes are considered. A small spiral distortion of an otherwise circular inner cladding shape is shown to enhance the coupling efficiency significantly relative to other geometries.
