Abstract

The feature of a multicore fiber with one-ring structure is theoretically analyzed and experimentally demonstrated. The one-ring structure overcomes the issues of the hexagonal close-pack structure. The possibility of 10-core fiber with Aeff of 110 μm2 and 12-core fiber with Aeff of 80 μm2 is theoretically presented. The fabricated 12-core fibers based on the simulation results realized Aeff of 80 μm2 and crosstalk less than −40 dB at 1550 nm after 100-km propagation. The MCF with the number of core larger than seven and the small crosstalk was demonstrated for the first time.
