Abstract

The mode discrimination criterion for single mode operation, usually considered in fiber amplifiers designed for high power operation, has been investigated and tested on three di erent fiber designs, a large pitch fiber and two symmetry free photonic crystal fibers. To have a significant collection of results, parameters like pump configuration, pump power, and amplifier length have been varied. The analysis has been carried out through the use of a custom numerical tool provided with e cient thermal and spatial amplification models. From the obtained results, it is possible to observe that the mode discrimination criterion is helpful but not strictly necessary to pledge an e ective single mode operation through di erential amplification. This fact extends the possibility for the study, as well as for the optimization, of di erent fiber designs. The use of advanced numerical analysis, which takes into consideration amplification along with thermally influenced modes guidance, becomes extremely useful for an e ective fiber design.
