Multicore and multimode optical amplifiers for space division multiplexing

Multicore and multimode optical amplifiers for space division multiplexing
Multicore and multimode optical amplifiers for space division multiplexing
Space division multiplexing (SDM) has attracted considerable attention within the fiber optics communication community as a very promising approach to significantly increase the transmission capacity of a single optical fiber and to reduce the overall cost per transmitted bit of information. Various SDM transmission fibers, for example, multicore fibers and multimode fibers, have been introduced, and a more than 100-fold capacity increase (~10 Pbit/s) relative to conventional single-mode fiber systems has successfully been demonstrated. Also, a wide range of new SDM components and SDM amplifiers has accordingly been developed, with most now realized in a fully fiberized format. These fully integrated devices and subsystems are one of the key requirements for the deployment of practical SDM in future networks due to their potential for cost-, energy-, and space-saving benefits. In this chapter, we review the state of the art in optical amplifiers for the various SDM approaches under investigation, with particular focus on multicore and multimode devices.

Abstract

Space division multiplexing (SDM) has attracted considerable attention within the fiber optics communication community as a very promising approach to significantly increase the transmission capacity of a single optical fiber and to reduce the overall cost per transmitted bit of information. Various SDM transmission fibers, for example, multicore fibers and multimode fibers, have been introduced, and a more than 100-fold capacity increase (~10 Pbit/s) relative to conventional single-mode fiber systems has successfully been demonstrated. Also, a wide range of new SDM components and SDM amplifiers has accordingly been developed, with most now realized in a fully fiberized format. These fully integrated devices and subsystems are one of the key requirements for the deployment of practical SDM in future networks due to their potential for cost-, energy-, and space-saving benefits. In this chapter, we review the state of the art in optical amplifiers for the various SDM approaches under investigation, with particular focus on multicore and multimode devices.
