Paper Abstract

Angle division multiplexing (ADM) is a multiplexing scheme which is applicable to optical signal transmission through multimode step-index fibers. ADM allows for parallel and high-bandwidth transmission by using passive components, i.e. no external control is necessary. The fiber quality limits the simultaneous optimization of transmission distance, number of channels and cross-talk. This paper reports on first experiments with an ADM based data link over 10 m between workstations with 8 Gigabit-Ethernet channels at a cross-talk of better than -10 dB. For a micro-optical integration of the ADM system design rules and tolerance considerations are discussed.
