Plastic Optical Fibers(POF) have been overshadowed in the last decade by the success of glass optical fibers. As a result, POF had been relegated to low bit rate and short distance applications. Recent technological advances and the emergence of a killer application in the automotive industry have propelled POF into the limelight of a lower cost alternative to glass fiber or copper at medium distances and bit rates of 10 gbps. This paper reviews the history of POF , the technical developmentsdoi:10.1109/mcom.2006.1705991 fatcat:jtdmn4pq7fazlo7uz4jhozm7km
