Abstract

This Letter reports on a large mode area pixelated Bragg fiber in which some high refractive index rods were replaced by boron-doped rods that allows polarization maintaining behavior while keeping single-mode behavior. The realized all-solid fiber has a core diameter of 35 µm. The fundamental mode is circular with a 25 µm mode field diameter around 1 µm wavelength, and the polarization extinction ratio reaches 30 dB. Finally, this fiber is single-mode and bendable up to a 20 cm radius with fundamental mode losses lower than 0.3 dB/m.
