Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9710285A1] The present invention is an improved method and apparatus for making fiber polymer optical fiber cable and graded index optical fibers. The polymer can be any shape including, but not limited to sheets, films or cable. The present invention also includes improved polymer optical fibers that incorporate compositions that shift the wavelength of radiation from ultraviolet radiation or X-ray radiation or infrared radiation to visible radiation.
