Abstract

Non-circular multi-core fibers (NC-MCFs) to accommodate more than 100 cores per fiber are proposed for super-dense space-division multiplexing. The proposed MCFs have the potential for easier splicing/connection and their applicability to highly-dense ribbon MCFs for ultra-high capacity optical transport systems.
