LASER COMPONENTS offers polymer optical fibers that emit coupled light sideways across the entire length of the fiber.
This property is extraordinary because normally the coupled light is actually transmitted within the optical fibers and only decoupled at the fiber end face. Conventional fibers are designed to keep the decoupled side light (leakage) to a minimum.
The side-light plastic optical fiber was created for design illumination tasks in which light must leak out equally across a certain length. For example, in the automobile industry, these fibers are suited for interior lighting in the middle console or the door frames. They can also open up new possibilities in the textile industry or lamp designs.
The side-light POF is available with diameters of 250 µm, 500 µm, 750 µm, and 1000 µm. They are available both as single fibers and fiber bundles with up to sixteen fibers.
