We have started the basic researches in order to investigate and explain the relation between photonics polymers and their properties. And based on them, we have proposed and demonstrated photonics polymers with new optical functions for application in photonics fields, for example, graded-index polymer optical fibers (GI-POFs), highly scattered optical transmission polymers, zero-birefringence optical polymers, and polymer optical fiber amplifiers and lasers. We propose the concept of "Fiber to the Display" and will apply these photonics polymers for it. In this concept, the GI-POF is directly connected to a large and high-quality display with more than gigabit order data transmission. Therefore, the real-time communication by high quality motion picture will become available for the first time even at home. The gigabit technology which we propose will bring us back to "Face-to-Face Communication".
