Paper Abstract

Detailed analysis has been performed of modal noise reduction by superposition of high frequency modulation. Data obtained revealed that, for both direct and external modulation, the modal noise reduction factor depends on the modulation frequency and fiber length. The fiber mode coupling, chromatic dispersion, and the mode partition noise have been neglected in the analysis. Experimental results confirmed that, for multimode fiber, the modal noise reduction depends almost only on the modulation depth.
