Abstract

Although the Graded Index Plastic Optical Fiber is thought to be the most suitable for high speed optical home network, there are still difficulties in workability of on-site construction, especially in fiber cutting. We investigated how the cutting method influences the surface condition. And, we got the prospect of new cut method that could achieve the cut surface shape that could realize a low connection loss without polishing.
