Graded-index polymer optical fiber (GI-POF) is a promising high-speed communication medium for very-short-reach networks, such as home or office networks. The refractive-index distribution of GI-POF needs to be accurately controlled to maximize the bandwidth. We attempted to control the refractive-index distribution by developing a simulation for dopant diffusion. In the rod-in-tube method, GI-POF with an optimal refractive-index distribution was obtained by adjusting the diffusion temperature and the diffusion time, whereas in the coextrusion process, GI-POF with an optimal refractive-index distribution was fabricated by controlling the length of the diffusion tube and the rate of discharge of polymer.
