It is pointed out theoretically that fiber acousto-optic mode coupling can occur between the higher-order modes with adjacent azimuthal numbers. Selective fiber mode conversion from LP 01 to LP 11 , and then to LP 21 or LP 02 is demonstrated experimentally in a few-mode fiber by using a method of cascaded acousto-optic mode coupling.
