Abstract

We demonstrate for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, an all-fiber orbital angular momentum (OAM) multiplexer that multiplexes both OAM modes of l and +l up to the second order by using a mode-selective photonic lantern and a mode polarization controller. The experimentally obtained mode profiles are close to the theoretical results, and the mode purities are higher than 89% for all the OAM modes at 1550 nm. The losses for all mode generations are less than 3.8 dB in the C-band.
