Abstract

We evaluate and compare the modal noise impacts in silica-based multimode fibers (MMFs) and plastic optical fibers (POFs) with same core diameters of 50-μm. In this experiment, we show that POFs fundamentally have higher tolerance to offset connection and lower modal noise than MMFs in terms of error-vector magnitude and speckle pattern.
