Polymer Optical Fibres : Fibre Types, Materials, Fabrication, Characterisation and Applications Hardback
Edited by Christian-Alexander (University of Applied Sciences Leipzig (HfTL), Germany) Bunge, Markus (RWTH Aachen University, Germany) Beckers, Thomas (RWTH Aachen University, Germany) Gries
Part of the Woodhead Publishing Series in Electronic and Optical Materials series
Polymer Optical Fibres: Fibre Types, Materials, Fabrication, Characterization, and Applications explores polymer optical fibers, specifically their materials, fabrication, characterization, measurement techniques, and applications.
Optical effects, including light propagation, degrading effects of attenuation, scattering, and dispersion, are explained.
Other important parameters like mechanical strength, operating temperatures, and processability are also described.
Polymer optical fibers (POF) have a number of advantages over glass fibers, such as low cost, flexibility, low weight, electromagnetic immunity, good bandwidth, simple installation, and mechanical stability.
