Title (EN) CONCENTRIC FIBER FOR SPACE-DIVISION MULTIPLEXED OPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS AND METHOD OF USE
(FR) FIBRE CONCENTRIQUE POUR COMMUNICATIONS OPTIQUES MULTIPLEXÉES PAR RÉPARTITION SPATIALE ET PROCÉDÉ D'UTILISATION
Abstract:
(EN) A space-division multiplexed optical fiber includes a relatively high refractive index optical core region surrounded by alternating regions of relatively low and relative high refractive index material, forming concentric high index rings around the core. The optical core region supports propagation of light along at least a first radial mode associated with the optical core region and a high index ring region supports propagation of light along at least a second radial mode associated with the high index ring region. The second radial mode is different from the first radial mode.
(FR) Une fibre optique multiplexée par répartition spatiale comprend une région cœur optique à indice de réfraction relativement élevé entourée par des régions alternées de matériau à indice de réfraction relativement faible et relativement élevé, formant des anneaux concentriques à indice élevé autour du cœur. La région cœur optique prend en charge la propagation de la lumière le long d'au moins un premier mode radial associé à la région cœur optique et une région anneaux à indice élevé prend en charge la propagation de la lumière le long d'au moins un second mode radial associé à la région cœur à indice élevé. Le second mode radial est différent du premier mode radial.
