Nonlinear Effects in Multi-Core Fibers

Space-division multiplexing (SDM), which consists in exploiting multimode fibers (MMFs) or multicore fibers (MCFs) instead of single mode ones, is one of the future optical communications architectures to increase data rates and network planning flexibility. The nonlinear properties of MCFs are of primary interest in assessing the usefulness of SDM against the current network. With this thesis, the student has the chance to work on a state-of-the-art topic in the field of optical communication systems, and progress quickly thanks to a tight (if desired) supervision.

Strong Coupling Multimode Fibers
Multimode fibers, Space-division multiplexing
Space-division multiplexing (SDM), which consists in exploiting multimode (MMF) or multicore fibers instead of single mode ones, is one of the future architectures to increase data rates and network planning flexibility. A desired working condition for SDM is the so called strong-coupling linear regime, which is however not intrinsically achievable in common MMFs. With this topic, the student has the chance to investigate if it would be achievable with some new design. If you are curious about it, just send a mail to email@example.com.
