Abstract

Space-division multiplexing (SDM) is an attractive technique for dramatically enhancing the transmission capacity in a single optical fiber. Recently, ultradense SDM transmission experiments with a spatial multiplicity of over 100 have been reported by using few mode multicore fibers (FM-MCFs). Considering the maximum capacity of around 100 Tb/s reported in single-mode single-core fiber transmission experiments, the capacity in FM-MCF transmission with more than 100 spatial channels is expected to reach 10 peta-b/s; however, the maximum capacity has been limited to 2 peta-b/s. In this paper, we demonstrate ultradense SDM transmission of 739 WDM 12-Gbd dual polarization—64-quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM)/16-QAM signals over 11.3-km 6-mode 19-core fiber using the C+L band, achieving a record fiber capacity of 10.16 peta-b/s with an aggregate spectral efficiency of 1099.9 b/s/Hz.
