Fto's process fiber cables fibertech optica opens new sales office in usa check out fto in an article from spie's journal of biomedical optics. Fiber optics (optical fibers) are long, thin strands of very pure glass about the diameter of a core - thin glass center of the fiber where the light travels cladding - outer optical material surrounding the core that reflects the light back into the core. Plastic optical fiber, (pof), typically uses pmma (acrylic), a general-purpose resin as the core material, and fluorinated polymers for the cladding material.
