Recentiy, GI-POFs were expected as the data-communication media for local area networks or home networks. Therefore, we proposed the novel fabrication process of GI-POFs using the co-extrusion process which enabled to fabricate GI-POFs continuously. It was confirmed that the refractive index profiles were controlled by various the temperature of the diffusion zone. It was quite noteworthy that the refractive index profile of the GI-POF obtained by the co-extrusion process was different from that of the GI-POF obtained by the direct diffusion process. It was indicated that the GI-POF obtained by this process enabled to have high-bandwidth, due to no tail part at the core-cladding boundary.
