Plastic Optical Fiber


Plastic optical fiber (POF) is one type of optical fiber (optical fiber) made of high transparent polymer such as polystyrene (PS), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), polycarbonate (PC) as core material, and PMMA, fluorine plastic, etc. as skin material. Different materials have different light attenuation properties and temperature application ranges. Plastic optical fiber can not only be used for the last 100 to 1000 meters of the access network, but also can be used in various vehicles, aircrafts, and other vehicles. It is an excellent short-distance data transmission medium.

Plastic Optical Fiber, POF. As of 2014, the optical fibers used in telecommunication cables are basically quartz optical fibers, which consist of high-purity silica SiO2 added with appropriate amount of dopants. In recent years, plastic optical fiber (POF) has also been gradually developed, which is an optical fiber made of a light-transmitting polymer. Because the polymer can be used to draw a simple process, it is relatively low cost, and relatively soft, strong, large diameter (about 1mm), low splice loss.

There are two main types of POF materials: PMMA (Polymer Polymethylmethacrylate); the other type is Perfluorinated polymers.
