Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate the in-span nonlinear accumulation of Rayleigh backscattered crosstalk in multicore fibers by novel distributed evaluation technique using multi-channel OTDR, which validates the previously-reported theoretical prediction. We also present the impact of fan-in/fan-out crosstalk on the backscattered crosstalk with experimentally-validated prediction formula.
