Abstract: Space division multiplex (SDM) in optical communications became an attractive research topic in recent years. A tremendous increase of data rates was exposed. In optical multiple-input multiple-output (OMIMO) SDM can be achieved by using separated fiber cores or several modes in multimode fibers (MMF). This paper tackles the task of mode selective excitation in MMFs. A completely new approach is shown utilizing digital mirror devices (DMDs) in this field. However, finding the optimal coupling conditions is a complex task due to the blazed grated structure of the micromirror array (MMA). A possible and intuitive solution for that problem is shown. Still, the benefits of such DMDs lies in the flexibility of mode excitation and the low insertion loss of around -1.27 dB. This paper shows that the mode separation is comparative to mode excitation achieved with offset splices.
