Abstract

Although the Graded Index Plastic Optical Fiber (GI POF) is thought to be the most suitable for high speed optical home network media, there are still difficulties in workability of on-site tools and methods, especially in fiber cutting compared with Step Index POF. In this paper we propose a new cutting method with appropriate blade shape and surface coating. By using the new method, an on-site worker can cut and connect GI POF possibly without polishing of the fiber end.
