Are few-mode fibres a practical solution to the capacity crunch?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference publication

Abstract

In this paper, we compare the nonlinear Shannon capacity of few-mode fibre systems operating with spatial-temporal digital signal processing to the nonlinear Shannon capacity of single-mode fibre systems operating with spectral-temporal digital signal processing. Combining these results with estimates of digital signal processing complexity for each option offers valuable insights to system designers.
