|What is POF?|
|Summary of Plastic Optical Fiber|
|Polymer Optical Fiber (POF for short) looks like a nylon rope, and is transparent to visible light. It is typically made of Polymethyl Methacrylate Polymer (PMMA) as the core material, and a fluorinated polymer as the cladding material.
Light travels inside the core of a polymer optical fiber; the cladding is the external ‘cover” that generates the guiding effect, which forces the light to follow the path of the fiber.
