We present a novel fiber type with a trilobal, non-circular cross section. The fiber is designed for illumination purposes with a special shape in order to form a distinct asymmetrical radiation pattern, which can be used to concentrate light on particular locations in order to cure resins or polymers but can also find its applications for illumination purposes.
