Plastic Optical Fibers and Gb/s Data Links

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter presents an overview of the evolution of plastic optical fibers (POFs) in the last 20. years, reviewing the technical achievements on both fiber design and system architectures that today allow the use of POF for Gb/s data links. In particular, we present the different POF materials (such as PMMA, perfluorinated polymers, etc.), types (such as SI-POF, GI-POF), and production processes, describing the resulting optical characteristics in terms of attenuation, dispersion, and bandwidth. We also describe POF main applications in industrial automation, home networking, and LAN.
