Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a Coherent Optical Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (COMIMO) communication system and its ability to exploit the inherent information capacity of Multi-Mode Fiber (MMF). COMIMO technique is a promising approach to unlock the information capacity of MMF as it ensures the necessary diversity for practically any fiber length. When exceeding the bandwidth-length product of the link, MIMO adaptive equalization can be used to mitigate inter-symbol interference (ISI). Furthermore, COMIMO link provides additional security in the physical layer that complements encryption.
