Abstract

Novel photonics polymer devices for broadband technologies are described, focusing on the high-bandwidth graded-index plastic optical fiber (GI POF). Based on these photonics polymer device technologies, the concept of "Fiber to the Display"is proposed, where GI POF is directly distributed to display from main server in a building or house. Therefore, real-time face-to-face communication with high-definition-television quality becomes possible, which cannot be achieved by current technologies. The authors believe that new innovative concepts of broadband society in the 21st century will be realized by "the proposal from the material side."
