Abstract

We report fabrication and testing of the first phosphate glass microstructured fiber lasers with large Er–Yb-codoped cores. For an 11-cm-long cladding-pumped fiber laser, more than 3W of continuous wave output power is demonstrated, and near single-mode beam quality is obtained for an active core area larger than 400μm2.
