Abstract

We demonstrate that a low-noise graded-index plastic optical fiber (GI POF) can significantly increase fiber alignment tolerance for error-free data transmission without optical isolators and/or angled fiber facets in a consumer-friendly multimode fiber (MMF) link based on a vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL). This improvement can be achieved by reflection noise reduction effects of the low-noise GI POF through its strong mode coupling because of microscopic heterogeneities in the core materials, which have much larger-scale density fluctuations than silica glasses. The novel GI POF allows for low-cost optical modules for various consumer applications in the upcoming 4K/8K era.
