Light Diffusing Optical Fiber for Illumination
Optical fibers are used for a variety of applications where light needs to be delivered from a light source to a remote location. Because optical fibers are typically designed to efficiently deliver light from point to point over long distances, they are not typically considered well-suited for use in forming an extended illumination source. Yet, there are a number of applications such as specialty lighting, signage and display applications where select amounts of light need to be provided in an efficient manner to the specified areas. In this presentation we describe an optical fiber in which scattering centers are placed in the core of the fiber provide very efficient scattering of light through the sides of the optical fiber.
