Plastic Fibers for Very Special Design Illumination

Side-Light POF

Side-Light POF
(PresseBox) ( Olching, )
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. In conventional fibers, keeping the decoupled side light to a minimum is a quality feature.

The side-light plastic optical fiber was created for design illumination tasks in which light must leak out equally across a certain length. In the automobile industry, these fibers are suited, for example, 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.
