The concept of mode division multiplexing also known as space division multiplexing was introduced as an alternative to combat the approaching capacity crunch in single mode fibers. Just like single mode fibers, space division multiplexed fibers will experience non-linearity at a different level and studies have shown that some linear effects can be beneficial in combating the nonlinear interference. This study aims to identify the benefits accrued when these linear effects are implemented by exploring the already existing models defined in the literature.
