Abstract

The orthogonality of Mode Division Multiplexing (MDM) with Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) and Polarization Division Multiplexing (PDM) is investigated applying WDM and PDM transmission over the LP11 mode in a few-moded fiber. Two wavelengths, each carrying 10Gbit/s signals in two orthogonal polarizations are successfully transmitted with the LP11 mode in a 10km long 2-mode fiber, resulting in a total 40Gbit/s data rate for one LP mode. This experiment demonstrates that MDM is orthogonal with WDM and PDM and can be regarded as a new additional dimension to increase optical networks' capacity.
