We report on the effectiveness of bend-loss mode filtering for power scaling of large-core, rare-earth-doped fibers. The technique affords a diffraction-limited beam quality from multimode fibers, which is crucial for practical applications of fiber sources. We demonstrate the technique in a >300-kW-peak-power, <1-ns-pulse-duration Yb-doped fiber amplifier, which we used for multiple harmonic generation.
