Paper Abstract

The efforts on the development of Polymeric Optical Fiber (POF) technology are increasing allover the world, covering many areas of application. Following this trend, different research groups in Brazil started to work with this promising technology in partnership. Many works on passive devices, sensors, Bragg gratings, and also on telecom areas are under development. This paper describes some of these works, trying to give an overview of the development of POF technology in Brazil. The efforts to create a POF Discussion Group in the Latin America community are also presented.
