All-fiber mode-group-selective photonic lantern using graded-index multimode fibers
Abbreviated Journal Title
DIVISION; TRANSMISSION; Optics
We demonstrate the first all-fiber mode-group-selective photonic lantern using multimode graded-index fibers. Mode selectivity for mode groups LP01, LP11 and LP21 + LP02 is 20-dB, 10-dB and 7-dB respectively. The insertion loss when butt coupled to multimode graded-index fiber is below 0.6-dB. The use of the multimode graded-index fibers in the taper can significantly reduce the adiabaticity requirement. (C) 2015 Optical Society of America
