29 January 2018 MIMO-free space-division-multiplexing for data center applications
Author Affiliations +
6×10 Gb/s polarization- and mode-multiplexed transmission without MIMO equalization for data center applications is experimentally demonstrated, over a 200-m elliptical core with two PANDA stress rods few-mode fiber (EP-FMF). This fiber simultaneously breaks the degeneracies of space and polarization in a mode group. A large effective index difference (Δneff=6.6×10-4 ) between adjacent modes among 6-modes is achieved over the entire C band, which translates to lower crosstalk than previous fiber designs. A polarization crosstalk of <-16 dB over 200 m and loss less than 0.63 dB/km were achieved.
