Abstract

We theoretically analyze the origin of inter-channel crosstalk in densely aligned multimode parallel optical waveguides for on-board interconnects using the Beam Propagation Method. In this paper, we demonstrate that the inter-channel crosstalk due to mode coupling is very low in graded-index (GI) circular-core waveguides because the propagation constants of the propagating modes are discrete. Additionally, it is also found that the waveguides with GI-type circular cores is sensitive to the optical confinement in the cladding: low-power cladding modes largely decrease the mode conversion.
