A method of measuring the illuminance distribution in the focus of the optical fiber illuminator is presented in this paper. The mentioned method makes use of the polymer-quartz optical fiber, type F-PCS-600/900-US. The fiber's front surface was moved on the examined surface in two, mutually perpendicular directions. The luminous flux, exiting the optical fiber was then measured with the use of the integrating sphere. An exemplary illuminance distribution was also presented in the paper. Illuminance curves were then compared for PCS and plastic optical fibers made from methyl polymethacrylate.
