When a plastic optical fiber undergoes a physical change, such as bending, the light passing through it undergoes changes that are detectable, allowing it to be used as a sensor.
POF is the medium of choice for high-speed data links inside the modern car.
Plastic optical fiber is able to withstand extreme ranges of operating temperatures.
The inexpensive and versatile nature of POF has lent itself to a wide spectrum of creative and unique lighting uses.
