We theoretically and experimentally investigate a singlemode-multimode-singlemode (SMS) structure based on chalcogenide (As2S3) multimode fiber and conventional silica singlemode fibers. The experimental results show a general agreement with the numerical simulation results based on a wide angle-beam propagation method (WA-BPM). The chalcogenide fiber and silica fibers were mechanically spliced and packaged using a UV cured polymer with a low refractive index on a microscope slide. Multimode interference variation was observed by photo-induced refractive index changes resulting from both a localized laser irradiation at a wavelength of 405 nm and a UV lamp. Our result provides a platform for the development of compact, high-optical-quality, and robust photonic nonlinear devices.
