Paper Abstract

A multi-order phase-only binary diffractive optical element was designed and fabricated to generate simultaneously in different diffractive orders 32 (doubled) LP-modes with indices n=0,11, m=1,5. The modes can propagate in a step-index optical fiber with cutoff value V=15. The same DOE can be used to launch LP-modes into a weakly guiding optical fiber and to select (detect) such modes at the fiber output. In the second case, the DOE works as a spatial filter matched to a definite set of modes. Several bounded modes can be excited in a step-index fiber that is single-mode bounded at wavelength 1300 nm using a laser beam at wavelength 632.8 nm (for which the DOE is fabricated). The experimental results of analyzing a multi-mode beam at the fiber output using the designed filter are reported.
