We demonstrate the first transmission of a space-division multiplexed 12D modulation format over a three-core coupled-core multicore fiber. The format occupies a single time slot spread across all three linearly-coupled spatial modes and shows improvements in MI and GMI after transmission compared to PDM-QPSK.
