We present what is, to the best of our knowledge, the first systematic study on how negative core-cladding index difference influences microstructured optical fiber's modal behavior. Single-mode lasing has been realized for short-length cladding-pumped phosphate glass microstructured fibers with large depressed-index Er3+-Yb3+-codoped cores.
