Fundamental and applications of holey fibers were presented. In this fiber the high index difference between glass and air resulted in strong optical confinement of light down to dimensions of order the wavelength resulting in a very high value of effective nonlinearity per unit length. Laser action in the range 1030-1100 nm on a single transverse mode with a power conversion efficiency of 80% was achieved using all-glass structures.
