Paper Abstract

In this paper, the possibility of interleaving optical wavelengths of a WDM system among M cores is investigated. This technique results in wider channel spacing in each core and non-overlapping spectra among cores, which leads to significant reduction in nonlinear impairments and inter-core crosstalk. In the proposed architecture, a single WDM data is transmitted over M cores and a single in-line amplifier, which reduces the system cost. The impact of crosstalk between cores of a multi-core fiber on the system performance is studied.
