We have demonstrated crosstalk mitigation in single-mode MCFs using optical space coding. Four types of single-mode multicore fiber (MCF) models were evaluated by our scheme with the modified prime code and differential detection. Typically, intercore crosstalk was improved by 7-20 dB in 9-core fibers with an original crosstalk of 10-20 dB.
