Abstract

We review recent developments in polymer optical fiber sensor technology and how such ‘POF’ sensors may extend the capabilities of the existing silica fiber sensors. Potential advantages result from the nature of the polymer materials, but at the same time the complex material properties of plastics have raised a number of challenges. Some of these have only been addressed recently.
