In the present work we have experimentally demonstrated possibility to suppress all the propagating modes except the operating hybrid one (LP03 for two high-index layer design). The main idea is based on introduction a thin ring layer with an extremely high optical loss to the position of electrical field minimum of the operating hybrid mode. Analysis of the mode composition carried out by off-center hybrid mode excitation confirms the asymptotically single-mode propagation regime.
