Abstract
Different launching methods over multimode fiber (MMF) are reviewed and compared under various aspects such as coupling coefficient, mode power distribution, and bit error rate performance. Among these, center launch and ring launch are elaborated and chosen as the inputs of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) scheme for center launch exciting limited lower-order modes while ring launch exciting limited higher ones. Furthermore, we discuss the theoretical background and give a new wide-band MMF MIMO mathematical model. This paper also proposes a novel MMF MIMO system combining the dual restricted launches together with multi-segments receiving. The simulated results indicate that an aggregate data rate of 20 Gb/s over 800-m graded index-multimode fiber can be achieved by using this newly established MIMO scheme.
