  • Factor de Impacto: 3316 (2010); Posición relativa Categoría Optics: 7/78 We evaluate a theoretical model based on the electric field propagation method but applied for the first time to amorphous perfluorinated graded-index polymer optical fibers (PF GIPOFs). The belief is that a better understanding of the factors that affect the fiber frequency response will prove very useful in increasing the performance of PF-GIPOF-based optical links in real situations. The influence of some parameters involved in the frequency response is addressed, and results show experimental data that validate, with tolerable discrepancy, the model described applied to this kind of optical fibers.
