Abstract

In short-reach multimode fibre (MMF) links, mode group diversity multiplexing (MGDM) can be used to create parallel, independent communication channels. Each channel uses a different subset of the propagating modes in the MMF. To allow for network topologies beyond the basic point-to-point scenario, passive components, such as optical splitters, are required. Such components may affect the modal spectrum of the MGDM channels and therefore the performance of the communication link. This paper presents an experimental investigation of the effect of passive optical components on an MGDM link.
