With the development of new fiber types, such as few-mode graded-index fibers, transverse modes in optical fibers have gained increasing interest in the recent years. As it became easier to address individual modes, transverse modes could be exploited for new fundamental nonlinear optical effects, like intermodal four-wave mixing [1], as well as for new applications, like spatial division multiplexing [2].
