TEM00 mode content measurements on a passive leakage channel fiber

Opt. Lett.
Type: Zeitschriftenaufsatz (reviewed)
Mode content measurements with a scanning ring cavity were performed in order to determine the TEM00 mode content of the output beam profile of a resonantly enhanced leakage channel fiber. The measurements were performed at 1.0 and 1.5 μm. In addition, the influence of different bending diameters as well as launching conditions has been investigated. Furthermore, a numerical simulation was used to determine the maximum theoretical TEM00 overlap, if only the fundamental fiber mode is guided. The simulation was also used to analyze how the TEM00 overlap for the case of any additional higher order fiber mode can be determined consistently.
