Abstract

Flexible polymer multimode waveguides are a promising low-cost technology for achieving high-speed optical interconnection in next-generation automobiles and aircrafts. Here, an overview of the light transmission performance of such waveguides is presented, achieving low loss, low crosstalk, high bandwidth and robust operation under strong flexure.
