GigaPOF® Fibers

Combining High Performance with Ease-of-Use

The next generation in POF technology began with the application of an amorphous perfluorinated polymer—polyperfluoro-butenylvinylether—to GigaPOF®. Because this polymer has very low attenuation in the near infrared, it is immediately compatible with gigabit transmission sources and can be used over distances of hundreds of meters. In addition, this perfluorinated fiber can be made with a graded refractive index and can support bandwidths more than 100 times larger than conventional step-index PMMA POF.
