Abstract

Angular Mode Group Diversity Multiplexing (AMGDM) is based on the principle that the axial angle of light propagating in a step-index multimode fiber is preserved for relatively short distances. By launching light from two laser diodes, each at a different angle, into a standard step-index Plastic Optical Fiber (POF), two different angular mode groups are excited, thereby creating two independent transmission channels in a single step-index POF. Moreover, these individual channels will experience less modal dispersion because fewer modes are present in each channel, leading to higher bandwidths. Using a demultiplexing setup consisting of two lenses and a concentric mirror, these two angular channels can be separated and detected properly at the receive side. Simultaneous transmission at a bit-rate of 500 Mb/s per channel with BER <10-10 is shown, resulting in a total bit-rate of 1 Gb/s over 25 m of standard SI-PMMAPOF.
