The ever-increasing demand for bandwidth in long-distance single-mode optical fibre transmission systems has seen the development and mass application of wavelength division multiplexing in recent years. To further increase the capacity of a single fibre, interest is now growing in the use of few-mode optical fibres, where each bound mode is used as a totally independent data channel, complete with its own wavelength division multiplexing.

One of the challenges in such mode multiplexing systems is the individual excitation and detection of each mode channel. This talk will present recent work that addresses this problem in two different ways, one approach using multi-port, few-mode Y-junctions and the other approach using mode-selective couplers.
