Paper Abstract

Interference sources specific for multimode fiber Passive Optical network are investigated. These include modal noise, changes and instabilities of the frequency responses, and optical beat interference. All these interferences should be reduced when the number of modes propagating in fiber is increased. Since the influence of optical beat interference in multimode fiber is reduced modal noise appears to be the most important adverse effect.
