Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Space division multiplexing (SDM) utilizing few-mode fibers or multicore fibers supporting multiple spatial channels, is currently under intense investigation as an efficient approach to overcome the current capacity limit of high-speed long-haul transmission systems based on single mode optical fibers. In order to realize the potential energy and cost savings offered by SDM systems, the individual spatial channels should be simultaneously multiplexed, transmitted, amplified and switched with associated SDM components and subsystems. In this paper, recent progress on the implementation of various SDM amplifiers and its related SDM components is presented.
