Paper Abstract

The side-emitting optical fibers are specially designed to stimulate leakage of the core-transmitted radiation via their side surfaces, so creating the effect of glowing tiny wires. The basic design concepts for this kind of optical fibers are discussed, as well as some of the present and potential future applications.
