Abstract
Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) rods have been prepared under various polyme- rization conditions. All the obtained rod-preforms were subjected to a drawing process to examine their thermoplastic properties. The mechanical and optical properties of the drawn PMMA fibres were determined with respect •to the preparation and drawing conditions of the rods. Polystyrene - core polymer optical fibres (POF) manufacturing as well, as gra- dient - index (GRIN) polymer rod preparation were also briefly reviewed.
