The authors have used multimode fiber in which they transmit the power-carrying light in the lower-order modes and the data signal in higher-order modes. They are launched into the fiber via a combination of a central launch (power light) and offset launch (data signal). Besides using different mode groups for the two signals, the cross-talk suppression at the receiver side is aided by wavelength-division multiplexing, as the two signals are transmitted at different wavelengths. As a result, the authors demonstrated transmission of 54 Mbit/s data over a distance of up to 4 km.
