Paper Abstract

Recently, mode-division multiplexing (MDM) has been investigated in transmission systems and optical access networks for capacity enhancement. In this paper, recent progress in MDM optical passive networks (PON) enabled by low-modal crosstalk few-mode fibers (FMFs) and optical components is reviewed. All-fiber mode multiplexer/demultiplexers (MUX/DeMUX) composed of mode-selective couplers (MSCs) are introduced to simultaneously multiplex or demultiplex multiple modes. Few-mode circulators (FMCs) are employed to realize bidirectional MDM-PON transmission. Direct detection without complex multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) digital signal processing (DSP) is applied. Moreover, multidimensional PONs by cascading MDM optical distribution network (ODN) with conventional time-division multiplexing (TDM) and wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) ODNs are proposed and experimentally demonstrated.
