The polystyrene (PS) based graded index polymer optical fibers (GI POFs) fabricated by a rod-in-tube method showed attenuations higher than 300 dB/km. This high attenuation PS based GI POF had a quite broad molecular weight distribution. In contrast, the PS based GI POF with narrow molecular weight distribution showed a low attenuation of around 160 dB/km. This is because the refractive index of PS, different from general polymers, is largely affected by the molecular weight.
