Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) systems offer the promise for low cost applications in communications, data transmission, illumination, lighting, imaging, sensing and light transmission. POF systems can provide the same advantages of glass optical fibers (GOF) but at lower cost and easier use. Glass optical fiber systems have received more attention than POF, mainly due to their rapid acceptance in the telephone industry. Recent developments in POF technology now make POF a contender for a large number of data and audio applications at data rates up to 100 Mbps and distances up to 100 meters. Plastic optical fiber systems are also finding increased applications for sensors and lighting. The technology is also moving rapidly as evidenced by recent papers on multimode and single mode POF, high temperature fibers, integrated POF circuits, laminated lightguides, discrete components both active and passive, optical switching, and other developments too numerous to mention.

The POF Newsletter has as its objective keeping end users, design engineers, installers, distributors, and systems integrators up-to-date on developments in POF technology, applications, products, standards and other aspects of plastic optical fiber components and systems. With no other publication available today devoted solely to plastic optical fiber technology, markets and applications, the POF Newsletter is the publication of record for those wishing to keep up with this fast moving field.
