Paper Abstract

Plastic optical fibers are now commonly used in lead scintillators for fast particle detection, wheither scintillating or wavelength shifting. Large N.A. fibers from 300 to 2.000 microns 0.D. are commonly drawn from cladded polystyrene doped or undoped core preforms. Various doping will allow the design of entirely new types of sensors.
