Abstract

We show that a GI POF can significantly reduce reflection noise in a multimode fiber link with a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) for drive currents below 10.0 mA. By directly observing the backreflected beam patterns from the fibers to the VCSEL, we showed that the noise reduction effect is closely related to the strong mode coupling because these may lower self-coupling efficiencies into the VCSEL. These results suggest that the GI POF is promising candidate for more level transmission with higher signal-to-noise ratio.
