Fibre drawing can be used to mass-produce metamaterials with designer electromagnetic response, for THz, infrared and beyond. We present a summary of the field, including experimental demonstrations of THz hyperlenses, infrared metamaterial fibres, and the path to shorter wavelengths.

Few-mode multicore fibre (FM-MCF) is a candidate for next-generation fibre which can drastically improve transmission capacity. Design requirements for FM-MCF and characteristics of a three-mode 12-core fibre that we fabricated are reviewed.

A Novel Compensation Method at the Receiver for Cross-Polarization Modulation Effects

Patricia Layec - Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs, Nozay, France Amirhossein Ghazisaeidi - Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs, Nozay, France Gabriel Charlet - Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs, Nozay, France Jean-Christophe Antona - Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs, Nozay, France Sebastien Bigo - Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs, Nozay, France

We propose a novel algorithm mitigating cross-polarization modulation based on a joint blind channel estimation and symbol detection. Using Nyquist pulse shaping and PDM-QPSK modulation, experiments are in accordance with simulations and show up to 0.7dB improvement in Q-factor.

Polarization Maintaining, Single Mode Hollow Core Fibers

Brian Mangan - OFS Laboratories, Somerset, NJ, USA Jeff Nicholson - OFS Laboratories, Somerset, NJ, USA John Fini - OFS Laboratories, Somerset, NJ, USA Linli Meng - OFS Laboratories, Somerset, NJ, USA Robert Windeler - OFS Laboratories, Somerset, NJ, USA Eric Monberg - OFS Laboratories, Somerset, NJ, USA Antony DeSantolo - OFS Laboratories, Somerset, NJ, USA Vitaly Mikhailov - OFS Laboratories, Somerset, NJ, USA Kazunori Mukasa - OFS Laboratories, Somerset, NJ, USA

The lowest loss hollow core fibers are typically multimode which can limit many applications. Here we demonstrate fibers that, using phase matched coupling, are single mode and by creating asymmetry in the core wall boundary, the fiber is polarization maintaining

Versatile customers, do we have FTTH solutions?

Benoit Charbonnier - Orange Labs, Lannion, France Fabienne Saliou - Orange Labs, Lannion, France Bertrand LeGuyader - Orange Labs, Lannion, France Philippe Chanclou - Orange Labs, Lannion, France

The versatility of FTTH users i.e. the fact that users have much different characteristics in terms of requirements but also in terms of physical parameters creates an opportunity for FTTH transmission systems to optimize their performance and efficiency.
