Abstract

A novel technique for suppression of unwanted modes in the hybrid fiber with anomalous dispersion near 1 µm has been proposed and realized. For this aim a special absorbing layer was placed to the position of the hybrid mode electric field minimum. As a result all other mode has excessive loss in the spectral region near 1.06 µm. On the contrary the optical loss of the hybrid mode almost does not change. Realized fiber was used for high quality pulse compression down to duration of 440 fs and energy of about of 20 pJ. Intra-cavity dispersion management has allowed us to realize a master-oscillator with output pulse energy up to 0.55 nJ and pulse duration below 700 fs.
