We have proposed and demonstrated the principle of optical mode switch. However, the crosstalk between modes has not yet reported due to the difficulty of mode recognition and distinction. To accomplish this mode crosstalk evaluation, we integrated multimode interference (MMI) mode filter with the optical mode switch in this work. As a result, for the both TE and TM modes, the crosstalk of approximately -10 dB has been evaluated experimentally.
