Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) Demand is increasing for fast and mass-storage communication between equipment such as computers, and there are high expectations for optical fiber ribbons as a means of achieving it. To realize optical parallel transmission, it is necessary to minimize the delay time difference (skew) between fibers in a ribbon. If a parallel optical transmission system will achieve a bit rate of a few Gbps, an allowable transmission skew is estimated to be less than 1 ps/m. It is known that the skew depends linearly on the fiber length difference in a ribbon, and also on the refractive index difference of the fibers used in the ribbon. In this trial, we made some samples and measured their skew. Also we examined the relationship between fiber strain and skew.
