Abstract

Two modes have been launched into a conventional 10-m long multimode graded-index optical fiber using spatial filtering techniques. The measured cross talk between the two modes in the baseband is −20 dB at the output end of the fiber. Modal multiplexing thus appears to be possible over short fiber lengths.
