Abstract

A statistical theory for crosstalk in multicore fibers is derived from coupled-mode equations including bend-induced perturbations. Bends are shown to play a crucial role in crosstalk, explaining large disagreement between experiments and previous calculations. The average crosstalk of a fiber segment is related to the statistics of the bend radius and orientation, including spinning along the fiber length. This framework allows efficient and accurate estimates of cross-talk for realistic telecommunications links.
