About the Conference
Like its predecessors POF World 2000 will focus on Applications of Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) in a wide range such as: data, sensors, illumination and medical. POF applications have shown significant market growth over the past year. All will be covered in separate sessions devoted to each topic. Last year was the first time since 1995, that data and non-data applications of POF were held together Based on the 1999 success, all applications will be included in all future POF World shows.
Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) based products are emerging across a broad spectrum of applications. There is now a strong desire to adopt low cost easy to use fiber-optic solutions in situations where previously the only available option was copper. POF is used or being designed into such broad applications as: multimedia, automotive and aerospace entertainment systems, lighting and architectural design, sensors, and point to point links. The challenge and the opportunity of marketing applications using POF are the main focus of POF World.
Signs, Illumination and Sensors
The applications for POF in signs and illumination continue to grow. Exciting new applications, such as woven fibers are truly spectacular. POF World is still the only place where manufactures in the POF sign and illumination world can get together for the exchange ideas of and display there products to potential customers.
