You will find the press releases in chronological order below. If you are looking for press releases from a specific department, use the navigation bar on the side.

A Special Design of Plastic Optical Fibre for Illumination


Side-Light POF

LASER COMPONENTS offers polymer optical fibres that emit coupled light sideways across the entire length of the fibre.

This property is extraordinary because normally the coupled light is actually transmitted within the optical fibres and only decoupled at the fibre end face. Conventional fibres are designed to keep the decoupled side light (leakage) to a minimum.

The side-light plastic optical fibre was created for design illumination tasks in which light must leak out equally across a certain length. For example, in the automobile industry, these fibres 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 fibres and fibre bundles with up to sixteen fibres.
