Abstract

We report the optimization of a few-mode fiber, adapted to multiple-input multiple-output mode division multiplexing, that supports 9 LP modes (15 spatial modes). The fiber is fabricated using standard multimode processes, which allows for tight process tolerances, yielding low differential mode group delays (<155 ps/km) with low attenuations (<0.22 dB/km), large effective areas (≥95 μm2) and low bend losses.
