SDM using uncoupled or coupled core multicore fibers promises to increase the bandwidth density in optical links. In addition, these fibers form a platform for various sensing systems, including 3D shape sensing. Both applications will be advanced by the low return loss fanout-multicore fiber assembly demonstrated here.
