Paper Abstract

The fabrication of polymeric optical fibers (POFs) must consider the obtain of very transparent, homogeneous, compatible and processable materials, the possibility to conform them in structures with diverse degrees of sophistication, and the fulfillment of the operation characteristics imposed on the finally obtained fibers. To meet all of these requirements a series of problems, related to the intrinsic properties of polymers and their processing, have to be solved. In this work we address the solution given to some of the roughest problems of POF fabrication within the context of a preform drawing based system.
