Multicore Plastic Optical Fiber

The M series is a new type of plastic optical fiber developed by Asahi Kasei that has multiple cores in one fiber, where the cores are immersed in a sea of cladding. There are many benefits to multicore POF. The first is that there is virtually no increase in attenuation when bent, therefore it can be used in tight spaces where bending is required. This makes it the perfect fit for LANs and other computer and audio connections.
