The oldest application of Plastic Optical Fibers (POF) is without
doubt the transmission of light. ln the early 80's Dupont de
Neiiours made some findings which were the beginning of the
development of plastic optical fibers.
Ten years later, with the progress of technology, lighting with POF
stimulated the interest of many users, in particular architects and
In this paper we will describe several systems of illumination
developed by Optectron France using POF, from these installations we
have obtained technical Information which were unavailable until now,
and which will be applied in new and even more complex projects.
