Plastic Optical Fibers: An Introduction to Their Technological Processes and Applications
Abstract The most significant features of plastic optical fibers (POFs) are reviewed, including the main types of POFs, their manufacture, and their possible present and future applications. Among… Expand
Global characterization of optical power propagation in step-index plastic optical fibers.
We propose to characterize optical power transmission in stepindex plastic optical fibers by estimating fiber diffusion and attenuation as functions of the propagation angle. We assume that power… Expand
Frequency response in step index plastic optical fibers obtained from the generalized power flow equation.
We present a method to obtain the frequency response of step index (SI) plastic optical fibers (POFs) based on the power flow equation generalized to incorporate the temporal dimension where the… Expand

Polymer optical fibers (POFs) doped with organic dyes can be used to make efficient lasers and amplifiers due to the high gains achievable in short distances. This paper analyzes the peculiarities of… Expand
Theoretical Analysis of the Torsion-Induced Optical Effect in a Plastic Optical Fiber
Abstract We have analyzed the optical effects induced by a torsion stress in a plastic optical fiber (POF). As a result of the torsion, the POF becomes biaxial and inhomogeneous. The new principal… Expand
Comparing polymer optical fiber, fiber Bragg grating, and traditional strain gauge for aircraft structural health monitoring
Systems for structural health monitoring in aeronautical structures use methods of measuring the elongation that normally require too heavy setups or difficult assembly jobs, such as those based on… Expand
Light power behaviour when bending plastic optical fibres
The redistribution of light power and the radiated power along a bent section of a plastic optical fibre (POF) is analysed. In this context, a theoretical approach for understanding, and hence… Expand
