Paper Abstract

The applications for plastic optical fibers (POF) have been expanding in recent years, as advantages of their properties over silica and glass optical fibers have become recognized. The automotive industry, in particular, has afforded one of the most fertile fields in which POF demonstrate their superior properties. This paper will outline the optical characteristics and physical properties of POF, which include the heat resistant type POF. Recent applications for POF in the automotive industry, such as ribbon illuminators and optical taps for data transmission links, are also described.
