Summary : Polymer photonics is an interdisciplinary field which demands excellence both in optics (photonics) and materials science (polymer). However, these disciplines have developed independently, and therefore the demand for a comprehensive work featuring the fundamentals of photonic polymers is greater than ever. This volume describes the fundamentals of plastic optical fibers. The first part of the book introduces typical optical fibers according to their classifications of material, propagating mode, and structure. Optical properties, the high bandwidth POF and transmission loss are discussed, followed by an outline on the propagating mode characteristics and how they affect the performances of the fiber. The second part of the book reviews conventional materials of POFs and gives an overview on fabrication methods. This is followed by a survey of characterization methods. Based on the characteristics of optical communication systems, the last chapter will concentrate on the many advantages of POF in link and network design. Written by a top expert in the field, this is an invaluable resource for electrical engineers, semiconductor physicists, materials scientists, polymer chemists, and those working in the optical communications industry. From the contents: • Transmission Loss • Transmission Capacity • Materials • Fabrication Techniques • Characterization • Optical Link Design

Summary : This work involves in designing and developing a POF-based directional coupler/splitter using lapping technique and geometrical blocks. Two fiber strands were first tapered at the middle and they were attached to the geometrical blocks and lapped together. Design parameters that are used to develop this coupler/splitter are core diameter, Dc, etching length, Le, bending radius, Rc, coupling length, Lc and pressure, Fc. All the parameters were taken into account during characterization and analysis of the designed coupler in order to find the most optimum prototype coupler/splitter. Characterizations are done by experimental set-up to test the efficiency, splitting ratio, coupling ratio, excess loss and insertion loss for all the couplers/splitters. Through the characterization process and analysis, the optimized coupler with high splitting ratio and low excess loss were identified. Throughout the experimental process, some of the fibers were improved and renewed in order to realize the design and development of the coupler using this technique. The device can also be utilized as an optical tap and the applications of the device are not only limited in in-house network but also in automotive applications. By using a platform, several splitting ratio can be obtained by integrating different core-cladding thickness and bending radius in order to get the desired splitting ratio and excess loss.

Summary : In this thesis, a distributed Brillouin sensor in perfluorinated polymer optical fibers utilizing BOFDA is presented. These commercially available polymer fibers offer beneficial characteristics for sensing applications such as higher break down strain up to 100 %, minimal bending radii below 2 mm, higher sensitivity to temperature and lower sensitivity to strain compared to their silica equivalent. The SBS parameters - backscattering power, linewidth and frequency shift - are inclusively related to the environmental parameters humidity, temperature and tensile strain. Furthermore, the perfluorinated polymer optical fibers are characterized with respect to the influence of relative humidity and temperature changes on spectral transmission absorption and Rayleigh backscattering, respectively. The chosen wavelength of operation at 1319 nm corresponds to lower fiber propagation loss (
