The aim of this work concerns theoretical and experimental investigation of operation of known from radio transmission multiple input multiple output (MIMO) systems in multimode fibers (MMF). This is possible due to some analogy between mutlipath propagation in radio transmission and modal dispersion in the fiber. The project involves both finding the appropriate modulation scheme and the most suitable radio frequency for this kind of transmission. The analysis of this kind of system should verify its potential of increasing MMF information capacity.
