Paper Abstract

Multicore fiber (MCF) is a promising candidate of an optical fiber for next generation large capacity transmission and high density optical wiring in data center application. To construct optical network based on MCF, a fan-out for connecting independent single core fibers and MCF is a key component. In addition, an optical connector for simultaneously connecting all cores of MCF is also a key component. In this paper, I report our works on fan-out and optical connectors for MCF.
