Ultrafast plastic optical fiber “Fontex”
By adopting CYTOP®, “Fontex” is more resistant to bending than quartz and ultra high speed transmission is possible. Optical fiber that uses acrylic resin experiences transmission loss in optical communication in the 650nm-1300nm wavelength region due to the C-H bonds contained in the acrylic resin. However “Fontex” using CYTOP® does not contain C-H bonds, so the 650nm-1300nm region is transparent and there is virtually no transmission loss. Compared to copper wire, it is lightweight with low power consumption and is resistant to noise.
