Abstract
Transmission of optical beams with phase front vorticity through relevant distances in optical fibers poses a problem of time-dependent intermodal interference with random complex coefficients. In this paper we propose a method for compensation of interference between LP-modes, propagating through the optical fiber. To implement optical-domain modal filtering, reconfigurable diffractive optical element matched with particular modes is considered. Such an element may be encoded as phase-only hologram by means of SLM. With this approach modes can be separated spatially in the compensating diffractive element far field and handled independently with corresponding complex coefficients. Efficiency of the proposed method is confirmed by computer simulation results.
