The different uses for fiber optic lights, and different types of lighting fiber.
Bavarian Optics developed Sollektor as a solution for bringing sunlight indoors.
As one of the killer applications of plastic optical fiber, lighting takes full advantage of the medium’s flexibility and transmissive properties.
In addition to high-speed data links that are unaffected by electromagnetic fields, fiber optics are an important component of various medical sensors and instruments. Image: Andy G / Flickr (source) (CC BY-SA 2.0)
