Abstract

We investigate the link-length-dependence of noise reduction effects for a graded-index plastic optical fiber (GI POF). This shows that the GI POF with noise reduction effects can significantly improve data transmission quality in multimode fiber link for consumer applications with lengths below 30 m. This can be resulted from strong mode coupling because of microscopic heterogeneities with larger-sized density fluctuations than silica glasses. The transmission quality improvement becomes more pronounced as fiber-length increases despite scattering loss increase for link lengths below 10 m, where mode coupling has more influence of noise reduction effects than scattering loss increase on transmission quality. These results suggest that the data transmission quality can be improved further by optimizing the noise reduction effects for various lengths.
