Abstract

A standalone module for rectangular array multicore fiber (MCF)-based optical interconnect (OI) is realized that includes inherent intercore crosstalk and provides space division multiplexed coupling/decoupling of optical power. The module is integrated in a short-reach communication system to provide bit error probability (BEP). Next, a closed-form equation for BEP applicable to MCF OI with intercore crosstalk is derived. For characteristic parameters of the module, results obtained by two approaches agree within 1% for 40 Gbps per channel and predict an error-free transmission of aggregated data rate of 2.5 Tbps through the MCF OI under consideration.
