Data Publisher: Aston University

Collection period:
1 October 201414 October 2014
Data Collection and Processing Methods: We report an investigation on the group delay spread in few-mode fibers operating in the weak and strong linear coupling regimes, and for the first time, we study the transition region between them. A single expression linking the group delay spread to the fiber correlation length is validated for any coupling regime, considering 3 guided modes. These data support the publication of the same title.
