Advantages of strong mode coupling for suppression of nonlinear distortion in few-mode fibers

Ferreira, Filipe, MacSuibhne, Naoise, Sánchez, Christian, Sygletos, Stylianos and Ellis, Andrew D. (2016). Advantages of strong mode coupling for suppression of nonlinear distortion in few-mode fibers. IN: Optical Fiber Communication Conference 2016. USA: Optical Society of America.


Nonlinear distortion in few-mode fibers for intermediate coupling is studied for the first time. Coupling strengths beyond -20 dB/100m give suppression of nonlinear distortion below the isolated mode without mode coupling.
