Abstract

By designing and optimizing complex phase pattern combining with axicon phase distribution, we report data multicasting from a single Gaussian mode to multiple Bessel modes using a single phase-only spatial light modulator. Under the obstructed path conditions, obstruction-free data-carrying N-fold Bessel modes multicasting is demonstrated in the experiment. We also experimentally study N-fold multicasting of a 20 Gbit/s quadrature phase-shift keying signal from a single Gaussian mode to multiple Bessel modes and measure the link performance. All the multicasted Bessel modes show relatively low crosstalk from their neighboring modes and achieve a bit-error rate of less than 1e–3.
