Modular Photonics is proud to announce the fabrication of the first integrated mode-selective few-mode multicore fiber mux capable of addressing the individual modes of a few-mode multicore  fiber. The work has been published in Scientific Reports. The compact multiplexers operate across the S+C+L telecommunications bands and allow for the simultaneous multiplexing of the LP01, LP11a and LP11b modes of all cores in a 3-mode, 4-core fiber with excellent mode extinction ratios and low insertion losses. The technology could readily be extended to fibers with more cores and more modes to allow for ultra-high capacity data transmission.

Modular Photonics announces OMPlex, a compact device connecting to the ends of OM1-4 multimode fiber that allows for single-mode performance extending the transmission length to several kilometres for 10G, 40G and beyond. The technology relies on the exclusive excitation of the fundamental mode in multimode fiber. OMPlex future proofs multimode fiber networks without requiring fiber recabling, building works or major service interruptions.
