Abstract  For uncoupled mode-division-multiplexed systems in weakly coupled (WC) few-mode fibers (FMFs), we numerically investigate the effect of splices on the statistical regularities of WC property preservation along the transmission link. At each splice, the probability density functions of intermodal cross talk (XT) for the transmitted linearly polarized mode(s) are numerically analyzed by using Gaussian fitting. Under the assessment criterion of accumulated intermodal XT affected by discrete splices, we give an empirical evaluation on the uncoupled probability value versus transmission distance, for WC FMF links with different splicing qualities.
