Abstract

The authors give an overview of experimental results on 10.7 Gb/s over large-core 1 mm polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA) polymer optical fiber (POF). The comparison starts with simple non-return-to-zero (NRZ) transmission without equalization. Next, measurement results with feed-forward-, decision -feedback equalization (FFE, DFE) and maximum likelihood sequence estimation (MLSE) are presented. Finally, experimental results with more advanced modulation schemes like pulse amplitude modulation (PAM) and discrete multitone (DMT) modulation are investigated. The experiments were carried out with a Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) at 0 dBm to comply with consumer eye-safety regulation or with a 10 mW laser diode (LD) that could be used in active optical cables.
