Paper Abstract

We discuss plastic optical fiber technology in the context of its relationship to glass optical fiber technology. POF technology serves as a low cost way to investigate innovative optical fiber material structures. POFs offer some application advantages, especially in low cost broad bandwidth easily interconnected local area networks. Applications to space technology include scintillation sensing and other specialty sensing fibers.
