Paper Abstract

Spatial domain multiplexing (SDM) also known as space division multiplexing adds a new degree of photon freedom to existing optical fiber multiplexing techniques by allocating separate radial locations to different MIMO channels as a function of the input launch angle. These independent MIMO channels remain confined to the designated location while traversing the length of the carrier fiber, due to helical propagation of light inside the fiber core. The SDM technique can be used in tandem with other multiplexing techniques, such as time division multiplexing (TDM), and wavelength division multiplexing in hybrid optical communication schemes, to achieve higher optical fiber bandwidth by increasing the photon efficiency due to added degrees of photon freedom. This paper presents the feasibility of a novel hybrid optical fiber communications architecture and shows that SDM channels of different operating wavelengths continue to follow the input launch angle based radial distribution pattern.
