Paper Abstract

The Step-index plastic optical fiber (SIPOF) bandwidth calculation model is given. The model includes not only the modal delay but also the attenuation and mode coupling effects. the numerical solution of the power flow equation in Fourier domain which is the main equation in this model is reported. This solution is based on Crank-Nicholson implicit difference method. The frequency response function and bandwidth of four kinds of SIPOFS with different Numerical aperture is researched. The frequency response function and bandwidth under selective excitation is numerically calculated. The results imply that the selective excitation of SIPOF increased effectively the fiber bandwidth. Calculated results are useful for practical application of plastic optical fiber.
