Abstract

A free space optical communication system transmits and receives optical signals in a colorless manner using an optical circulator. The system installs the optical circulator with a single mode (SM) fiber at port 1, a double clad (DC) fiber at port 2, and a multimode (MM) fiber at port 3. The system injects a first optical signal into a core of the SM fiber. The system then routes the first optical signal at port 1, using the optical circulator, into a SM core of the DC fiber via Port 2. Further, the system injects a second optical signal into a first cladding of the DC fiber. The system then routes the second optical signal at port 2, using the optical circulator, into the MM fiber via Port 3.
