Abstract

We develop a complete theoretical model to explain the interaction of modal and chromatic dispersion in optical channels based on vertical cavity surface emitting lasers and multimode fibers. We propose an original formalism to estimate the magnitude of this interaction on the channel bandwidth and mode partition noise power penalty within traditional communication system link models. Simulation results are experimentally validated.
