Resumen

Multicore fibers (MCFs) are expected as a good candidate for overcoming the capacity limit of current optical communication systems. This paper describes the modal analysis of a 3-core MCF taking into account some geometrical and material degrees of freedom. A reasonable tailoring of the modal distribution is shown to be achievable.
