Paper Abstract

A new POF fiber/cable will be discussed based on both calculation and measurements, attenuation, intermodal dispersion and material dispersion. Improvements in POF fiber/cable mechanical properties have been achieved without compromising optical transmission characteristics. After forty thousand repeated bending cycles the cable jacked with PVCl, for flame resistance, maintain the original level of optical transmission. The feasibility of 10 Mbps POF data links with visible LEDs and 125 Mbps data links with LDs are evaluated. The color filtering effects of POF, LED/LD thermal drift, and intermodal dispersion will be considered.
