Geometric requirements for photonic lanterns in space division multiplexing.


We investigate the use of "photonic lanterns" as adiabatic mode converters for space-division multiplexing (SDM) systems to interface multiple single-mode fibers to a multi-mode fiber. In a SDM system, minimizing the coupling loss and mode-dependent loss best utilizes all spatial modes of the fiber which increases the capacity, the transmission distance… (More)
