Paper Abstract

A high-bandwidth graded-index (GI) polymer optical fiber (POF) was successfully obtained by a new random copolymerization technique. The bandwidth of the GI POF is about 1 GHz (DOT) km, which is 200 times larger than that of the conventional step-index (SI) POF. The total attenuation of the transmission is 150 - 200 dB/km at 652 nm wavelength and the tensile strength is about 1600 kg/cm2.
