Paper Abstract

In comparison to standard fibers, fluorescent plastic optical fibers have quite different absorption and emission spectra, especially in the UV-A region up to the NIR-region depending on the co-dopant. These properties can be used for new applications in the field of sensors. In addition to a brief description of the mechanism of light-interaction within the dye-doped core material, an overview is given of the most promising applications.
