Abstract

We propose a transmission distance-independent technique for modal dispersion compensation over few-mode fiber that uses a single-input multiple-output configuration and adaptive equalization. Our technique can compensate for the modal dispersion of a signal with 1-tap FIR filters regardless of the amount of modal delay difference, and enables us to utilize fiber with a large core and few modes as a long-haul transmission line. We also show numerically the advantage of few-mode photonic crystal fiber (PCF) for realizing a larger effective area (Aeff), and finally we report a transmission over a large-core two-mode PCF with Aeff>280 μm2.
