Large-pitch fibers have enabled many current records of average power, pulse energy and pulse peak power in ultra-fast fiber laser systems with very large mode-field diameters (>50 µm). We present an enhanced fiber design with lower symmetry which results in very high mode discrimination. This structure has been obtained by translating the non-symmetric characteristics of spiral geometries into a hexagonal lattice.
