Paper Abstract

Refined specifications for plastic optical fibers (POFs) intended for use in a growing medical sensors market are proposed. A unique extrinsic sensor configuration, exclusively using a POF as the light carrier element, presents major advantages in clinical applications. Marketing projections for the medical sensors reveal a high demand for these types of optical fibers.
