In this thesis, theoretical and experimental studies on hollow optical fibers (HOFs) and depressed clad hollow optical fibers (DCHOFs) for cladding-pumped high power fiber laser sources, operating at a wavelength range 900 - 1100 nm, are reported. In addition, the suppression of the stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) in a single-mode high power fiber-based master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) source, using W-type Yb The suppression of the stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) in a small and single-mode core becomes an issue when considering the power scaling of a fiber laser. Here a W-type fiber was designed for SRS suppression with the fundamental mode cut-off set, by design, between the signal and the 1st order Raman Stokes wavelengths. SRS suppression was demonstrated in a high peak power fiber MOPA source with a single-mode output. The maximum peak power achieved was 13 kW with a small, and single-mode, core fiber without any evidence of SRS occurring.
