Abstract

We report the fabrication of a large mode area tellurite holey fiber from an extruded preform, with a mode area of 3000microm(2). Robust single-mode guidance at 1.55microm was confirmed by both optical measurement and numerical simulation. The propagation loss was measured as 2.9dB/m at 1.55microm. A broad and flat supercontinuum from 0.9 to 2.5microm with 6mW output was obtained with a 9cm length of this fiber.
