  • Proposal of novel temperature-independent Zero–Zero-birefringence polymer with high heat-resistance

    Watanabe K., Kobayashi Y., Koike Y.

    IEICE Transactions on Electronics (IEICE Transactions on Electronics)  E104C ( 2 ) 59 - 63 2021.02

    ISSN  09168524

     View Summary

    Copyright © 2021 The Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers. Temperature-independent zero–zero-birefringence polymer (TIZZBP), which exhibits very small birefringence over the wide temperature range, is required to realize real-color images for displays, particularly vehicle-mounted displays. Previously, a TIZZBP was synthesized, but they did not put into practical use because of their too complex composition and low mechanical strength. In this paper, we propose a practical TIZZBP that has high heat resistance, high transparency and sufficient mechanical strength, using a simple binary copolymerization system. Our proposed novel polymer exhibits very low photoelastic birefringence and very low orientational birefringence. Both types of birefringence of this TIZZBP satisfy the negligible levels for displays, which are defined as follows: the absolute values of photoelastic coefficient and intrinsic birefringence are less than 1 ×10−12 Pa−1 and 1 ×10−3, respectively. In addition, temperature dependency of orientational birefringence was very low. Orientational birefringence satisfies the negligible level all over the temperature range from around −40◦C to 85◦C. This temperature range is important because it is the operational temperature range for vehicle-mounted display. Furthermore, our proposed novel TIZZBP showed high heat resistance, high transparency and sufficient mechanical strength. The glass transition temperature was 194◦C. The total light transmittance and the haze value is more than 91% and less than 1%, respectively. The tensile strength of non-oriented films was 35 ∼ 50 MPa. These results suggest our proposed novel TIZZBP has high practicality in addition to very low birefringence. Therefore, this TIZZBP film will be very useful for various displays including vehicle-mounted displays and flexible displays.

  • Low-Noise Graded-Index Plastic Optical Fiber Achieved by Specific Copolymerization Process

    Akashi T., Inoue A., Koike Y.

    Journal of Lightwave Technology (Journal of Lightwave Technology)   2021

    ISSN  07338724

     View Summary

    Ultra-high-definition (UHD) technologies have recently received attention on account of their practical applications in consumer electronics. UHD devices require uncompressed video transmission at a data rate exceeding 100 Gb/s; thus, an optical fiber connection is essential. In consumer applications, optical fibers are very short. Moreover, their connections must permit variations in the fiber alignment, which accommodates rough handling by consumers. Under this condition, the transmitted signal quality is significantly degraded owing to noise and instabilities that strongly depend on the fiber alignment conditions in optical modules and connectors. Therefore, graded-index plastic optical fibers (GI POFs) are promising optical cables for consumer applications because of their flexibility, safety, and high bandwidth. Recently, the authors experimentally demonstrated that GI POFs can reduce interferometric noise, such as modal noise and multipath interference noise, in a multimode fiber link based on a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL). This noise reduction effect results from strong mode coupling of GI POFs, which is closely related to microscopic heterogeneous structures of a core polymer matrix. In this paper, a control method of mode coupling using the copolymerization process for fiber core materials is proposed. The formation of composition fluctuations by copolymerization increases the mode coupling in the GI POF core. It thereby enables highly stable and robust data transmission with a large fiber misalignment tolerance in a VCSEL-based multimode fiber link. The proposed method for mode coupling control is expected to contribute to household optical communication systems in the upcoming UHD era.

  • Noise and Distortion Reduction in OFDM Radio-Over-Fiber Link by Graded-Index Plastic Optical Fiber

    Muramoto K., Inoue A., Koike Y.

    IEEE Photonics Technology Letters (IEEE Photonics Technology Letters)  32 ( 13 ) 835 - 838 2020.07

    ISSN  10411135

     View Summary

    © 1989-2012 IEEE. We demonstrate that a graded-index plastic optical fiber (GI POF) enables higher-quality radio-over-fiber (RoF) transmission of an orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) signal, compared with a conventional multimode fiber, for short-distance household applications (< 100 m). It is shown that the improvement in OFDM signal transmission, using the GI POF, can be attributed to the reduction in noise and intermodulation distortion, owing to the external optical feedback from the transmission fibers. The low noise and low distortion in the signal transmission are mainly due to the strong mode coupling in the GI POF, which is closely related to the microscopic heterogeneous structures in core polymer materials. The developed GI POF will be invaluable for RoF networks in households as a solution for indoor broadband wireless communications in the upcoming 5G era.

  • Low-noise radio over graded-index plastic optical fiber

    Inoue A., Koike Y.

    Optics Letters (Optics Letters)  45 ( 12 ) 3192 - 3195 2020.06

    ISSN  01469592

     View Summary

    © 2020 Optical Society of America We developed a graded-index plastic optical fiber (GI POF) that enables lower-noise radio frequency (RF) transmission than conventional multimode fibers for short-distance household applications (<100 m). It is shown that reflection noise degrades RF transmission, regardless of the carrier frequency, through the spurious generation that accompanies the RF modulation of a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser. The GI POF with distinctive mode coupling, which is closely related to its microscopic polymer structure, suppresses noise and spurious generation to improve transmission quality. Our low-noise radio-over-GI-POF technology will offer significant advantages for optical wiring systems for broadcast and communication in small- and medium-scale buildings.

  • Reflowable optical connector with glass-ceramic ferrule for advanced pluggable transceiver packaging

    Shikama K., Koike Y.

    Optical Fiber Technology (Optical Fiber Technology)  54 2020.01

    ISSN  10685200

     View Summary

    © 2019 Elsevier Inc. We describe a new physical-contact optical fiber connector/receptacle that can withstand a solder-reflow process with a maximum temperature of 260 °C for advanced pluggable transceiver packaging such as the co-packaging of photonic and electronic chips using the reflow process. We experimentally clarify the problems that occur in the conventional simplex optical connector through the reflow process while discussing the glass-transition behavior of the adhesive used in the connector. We then present an improved receptacle structure with glass-based ferrules whose coefficients of thermal expansion are closer to that of the fiber compared to the conventional zirconia ferrule. We demonstrate through testing that our proposed receptacle results in a dramatic decrease of permanent fiber withdrawals after the reflow process. The proposed connector, which is composed of a glass-ceramic ferrule, a polyimide tube, and a mechanical clip, achieved physical-contact connection and maintained satisfactory connection and return losses of below 0.3 dB and over 45 dB, respectively, even after six reflow processes. We examined the withdrawal behaviors for both the zirconia and the glass-ceramic ferrules during reflow based on the online measurement of connection and return losses, and observed the multiple reflections caused by the change in the air-gap width between the mated connectors. We also confirmed that the developed simplex optical connectors based on the glass-ceramic ferrule yielded sufficient environmental durability even after multiple reflow processes.
