A moderately coupled multicore fiber (MCF) design is proposed with the aim of realizing both low intercore multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) processing complexity and high-space utilization efficiency. We numerically and experimentally investigated the influence of mode coupling on the intercore differential mode delay (DMD) in homogeneous core MCF, and… CONTINUE READING
