The standard PMMA SI-POF is very attractive for use in short-range communication and in-building networks. Due to modal dispersion, the SI-POF’s bandwidth is small and limits the maximum data rate which can be transmitted. To overcome the problem of the PMMA POF’s high transmission loss and low bandwidth we introduced a sensitive receiver with a high linearity for multilevel signaling.
