抄録

Graded-index plastic optical fibers (GI POFs) are a highly attractive transmission medium for short-range communications such as local area networks and interconnections. In addition to the extremely high bit-rates, which can be more than 100 Gbps over 100 m, these fibers offer many advantages derived from the nature of the polymeric materials: a greater flexibility, easier handling, and simpler installation. GI POFs are no longer just alternatives to other transmission media; they are becoming an indispensable option for many applications. This chapter reviews the development history and latest advances in the performance of GI POFs from the perspective of the materials and fabrication techniques that have supported this progress.
