Abstract

We demonstrate gigabit per second transmission over a step index plastic optical fibre (SI-POF) of 10 m length with pulse amplitude modulation (PAM). Multilayer perceptron (MLP) based equalizer is used to mitigate intersymbol interference and non-linearity in the system. Using this equalizer with 32-PAM, a data rate of 10 Gbps is achieved over the 10 m SI-POF at a bit-error-rate of 10-2, which is below the 20% forward error correction limit Index Terms -Polymer optical fibre (POF), multilayer perceptron (MLP), Decision feedback equalizer, pulse amplitude modulation (PAM), non-linearity.
