Novel chirally-coupled-core (CCC) fibers enabled large-core laser systems operating robustly-single-mode, independently of fiber excitation, splicing and coiling conditions. A variety of high power continuous-wave, nanosecond-pulse and femtosecond-pulse fiber-laser systems have been demonstrated using CCC fibers.
