  • Publication number: 20160344478
    Abstract: Examples include generating a signal using a modulatable source. The signal may be propagated using a multi-mode fiber to receive the signal from the modulatable source. The fiber has a diameter d and a far-field divergence angle associated with the propagated signal that corresponds to a product of the diameter (d) and the far-field divergence angle. The product may be substantially between 1 micron radian and 4 micron radian. In some examples, the propagated signal may be received at a receiver from the multi-mode fiber.

  • Publication number: 20160327746
    Abstract: Bidirectional optical multiplexing employs a high contrast grating as one or both of a beam-forming lens and a relay mirror. A bidirectional optical multiplexer includes the beam-forming lens to focus light. The light is one or both of a light beam internal to and another light beam external to the bidirectional optical multiplexer. The bidirectional optical multiplexer further includes an optical filter and the relay mirror. The optical filter is to selectively pass a portion of the internal light beam at a first wavelength and to reflect portions of the internal light beam at other wavelengths. The relay mirror is to reflect the internal light beam along a zigzag propagation path between the optical filter and the relay mirror.
