We demonstrate three-level laser operation at 976 nm of a large-core Yb-doped aluminosilicate fiber, which is fabricated by powder-sinter technology and shows a very homogeneous refractive index profile. The investigated fiber has a core diameter of 126 µm and a numerical aperture of 0.18, well-matched to standard fiber coupled pump diodes. The core composition has been optimized to reduce photodarkening effects. Multimode and single mode operation with multiple Watts output power is presented for this fiber making it useful for the realization of high brightness fiber coupled pump sources.
