In this paper, we present long-haul 32-core dense space-division-multiplexed (DSDM) unidirectional transmission over a single-mode multicore transmission line. We developed a low-crosstalk heterogeneous 32-core fiber with a square lattice arrangement, and a novel partial recirculating loop system. The span crosstalk of the 51.4-km 32-core transmission line… CONTINUE READING
