'[OT]: Looking for optical fibers'
2000\12\11@171931 by John Pearson

I know nothing about optical fibers or fiber optics.

Where can I buy optical fibers. I don't want cable, but will buy cable if
it contains the fibers I want.

If I have to buy cable, what kind of cable would I want? What kind of cable
would have lots of thick fibers. I wouldn't care about insulation or the
jacket.

Thanks for any help, info.

John

We buy low grade POF (Plastic Optical Fiber) from a company called Moritex.
Try Lauren at 800-548-7093.

A company called Industrial Fiber Optics has some neat kits and other stuff.

John,
I think it would help if you gave us a clue what you intended to use the
fibre optics for and over what distance, under what conditions and with what
budget.

As it stands your query akins to "I wish to communicate, how do I do it?"

Regards
Chris

Don't know what length you want, but try a phone or cable company for
offcuts. Did that once and got 2m lengths from the roadside repairers
and they had longer if I'd wanted it (on the QT of course while no one
was looking)

Nylon isn't too expensive, though naturally not as clear as glass which
might limit you, and I think it generally tends to be thicker, 0.5 or 1mm
in an overall 2mm thickness including jacket

"Thick" is a pretty loose term for glass

It all depends what you are going to use it for. Different uses have
completely different specs.
I think RS components have a range of various types - at their normal
markup.

John, sounds to me like you're trying to use the fibers for side
illumination. There are sideglow POF's available in solid core, stranded
and gel filled. It's easier and cheaper to buy them rather then roll your own.
