Abstract

We propose a mode multiplexer based on volume holograms to realize a simple and efficient mode-division-multiplexed transmission system that supports a large number of modes. Selective multiexcitation of three spatial modes into a conventional multimode fiber is experimentally demonstrated. This device could potentially multiplex 10 or more modes. Future perspectives of the mode multiplexer for application in mode-division multiplexing are also discussed.
