Abstract
We review the unique properties of a so-called optical fiber fuse phenomenon in plastic optical fibers (POFs), including its slow propagation velocity (1–2 orders of magnitude slower than that in silica fibers) and threshold power density (1/180 of the value for silica fibers). We also show that an oscillatory continuous curve instead of periodic voids is formed after the passage of the fuse, and that the bright spot is not a plasma but an optical discharge, the temperature of which is ~3600 K. We then discuss its impact on distributed Brillouin sensing based on POFs.
