Paper Abstract

Polymer Optical Fibers (POF) are the most promising solution for the "last 100 m" ion data communication. The combine the inherent benefits of all optical fibers such as high bandwidth, total electromagnetic immunity with additionally amazing simplicity in handling. This paper will show the evolution of POF for datacom applications, starting from standard step index types via multi-step-index- or multi-core-types to recently published micro-structured POF.
