presuming that MMCL is the native launch
from the TOSA directly into MMF, then the increase in PIE-D relative to
the SMCL case would be attributable to power that gets filtered out by
the SM cord. Into which mode groups this filtered power couples
is of key importance, since the modal delay difference relative to the
lowest order modes will increase with mode group number, leading to higher
PIE-D. So it becomes critical to quantify the native launch. While
a CPR measurement can be of some assistance, it can only tell us
how much power lies in higher modes, not which higher modes are excited.
So its utility is very limited, unless the CPR requirement is set
very low, meaning very little power is permitted to be filtered out by
a SM cord. But an encircled flux measurement could provide sufficient
information. Can you measure EF at 1300 nm?
In addition, the native launch would
need to be examined with the effects of offset connections near the transmitter.
With this effect included, it is likely that the performance of this
particular native launch will degrade to levels similar to those of the
MCP without offset connectors (green bars on slide 5).

What is multimode center launch exactly (MMCL)? Also, why do you
have a 2nd 7 um offset connector in the 50 MCP case?
It is shown after the main spool so I presume it does not have a large
effect, but what was the motivation?
Finally, did you ever test any of the OM3 with a 62-MCP (i.e larger offset
than 16 um).
