Abstract

We present a novel optical transmission system to experimentally demonstrate the possibility of mode division multiplexing. Its key components are mode multiplexer and demultiplexer based on a programmable liquid crystal on silicon panel, a prototype few-mode fiber, and a 4x4 multiple input multiple output algorithm processing the information of two polarization diversity coherent receivers. Using this system, we transmit two 100Gb/s PDM-QPSK data streams modulated on two different modes of the prototype few-mode fiber. After 40km, we obtain Q2-factors about 1dB above the limit for forward error correction.
