Abstract

We report the first few-mode compatible optical add/drop multiplexer (OADM) that enables add/drop functionality for mode division multiplexed (MDM) superchannels. The OADM is comprised of two cascaded free-space thin-film filters with 5° incident angle. The transmission of MDM superchannel CO-OFDM signals via the OADM is investigated. The experimental result shows that the OSNR penalties for add, drop and through ports are 2.6, 2.4, 0.7 dB, respectively for 3x318 Gb/s superchannels.
