Paper Abstract

Space-Division Multiplexing (SDM), introduced more than 3 decades ago, is currently subject to intense research due to its ability to provide order-of-magnitude capacity growth in future transmission systems. Fibers play a central role in this renewed research field, and significant efforts have recently been spent to develop new fibers for SDM. In this paper, we will review the most recent advances on these different SDM fibers. We will also compare their performances and evaluate their respective potentials using the spatial density parameter that is a measure of the space efficiency.
