Abstract

Plastic optical fiber (POF) is a highly promising transmission medium for future home networking. In comparison to glass optical fibers (GOFs), which are commonly used in core and metropolitan networks, POFs offer many advantages such as great flexibility and easy handling. This chapter begins with a review of the basic concepts of fiber optics and moves on to the latest developments in POF applications.
