Paper Abstract

The paper deals with Multicore Optical Fibres /MOFs/. Such fibres have two or more single mode or multimode or simultaneously both kinds of cores distributed in the cladding. The individual cores could be naturally coupled or not. We have made a few families of microoptical components of these fibres. These components have been used for construction of the following devices, circuits and equipment: hybrid integrated active optoelectronic devices, fiber optic network nodes, microoptics for links with multifactor flow, buses, signal processing - local and distributed, and various kinds of simple links. In the paper we outline the fibering techniques for multicore filaments, some of their theory and define basic kinds of operations. Then we present kinds of multicore optical fibre microcomponents and some results of our own laboratory experiments. The work concludes with a digest of existing as well as potential and ultimate applications of MOF microoptics and MOFs themselves. In other words, the paper deals with new possibilities of optical signal transmission, distribution and more complex processing like optical direct multiplexing, demultiplexing, mixing, interfacing, interfering, coupling in MOF microdevices for IO and COFOCS.
