Abstract

The use of multimode fibers in mode division multiplexed space-division multiplexing systems offers one solution to the capacity limitations of single-mode fiber transmission. Passive components to control the individual modes in few-mode fiber (FMF) are key elements to build more complex modules and components necessary for a high performance system. Fiber-based mode converters are important elements in the FMF mux/demux, and long-period gratings have been investigated to provide mode conversion in two- and four-mode fibers. A method to separate and monitor the modes in real time is described as the basis of a method to measure the individual modal performance of a component during fabrication.
