We propose and evaluate fractional orbital angular momentum (OAM) (de)multiplexing in free-space optical communications with atmospheric turbulence. MIMO equalization is employed to effectively mitigate turbulence-induced crosstalk and enable robust fractional OAM communications with favorable performance.
