We show that, using index guidance within an isotropic all SiO2 structure of only 4 layers, it possible to design an optical fiber that supports just one mode of a single polarization: the azimuthally polarized TE01 mode. In particular a ring guide of appropriate index of doped SiO2, thickness and radius guides TE01 as the fundamental mode. Then an outer layer can be used to cut off higher order modes. This design is in contrast to those that require Bragg guidance or anisotropic materials.
