Paper Abstract

The basic advantage of illuminating plastic optical fibers is related to simplicity of their processing. Thanks to such characteristic, it is possible to create optical fiber bundles, which fit exactly the given illumination solution. Two basic methods of procesing optical fibers are most common: grinding and polishing or thermo-cutting with the means of so-called "hot knife." These two types of processing were then examined against their influence on the luminous parameters: amount of the transferred luminous flux and the shape of the luminous intensity distribution.
