Recent progress in high-speed polymer optical fiber

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Recent progress of the graded-index polymer optical fiber (GI POF) is reviewed. The low-loss perfluorinated (PF) polymer base GI POF experimentally achieved gigabit transmission for more than 200 m in the range of visible to near infrared region. In addition, improvement of the thermal and long-term stability of the bandwidth of the GI POF with using a new dopant material is described.
