This straightforward text examines the scientific principles, characterization techniques, and fabrication methods used to design and produce high quality optical fibers. Polymer Fiber Optics: Materials, Physics, and Applications focuses on the fundamental concepts that will continue to play a role in future research and applications.

This book documents the underlying physics of polymer fibers, particularly aspects of light interaction, and details the practical considerations for a broad range of characterization techniques used to investigate new phenomena. The book presents basic fabrication techniques and protocols that will likely remain useful as new advances address specific processing challenges. The author presents a fresh approach to standard derivations, using numerous figures and diagrams to break down complex concepts and illustrate theoretical calculations. The final chapters draw attention to the latest directions in research and novel applications, including photomechanical actuation, electro-optic fibers, and smart materials.

Review:

This book covers extensively all the new technology regarding polymer optical fibers as well as silica-based optical glass fibers...the writing style is excellent...
- Un-Chul Paek, Chaired Professor of Information and Communications, Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), Korea

This book presents a lucid narrative on a broad range of topics pertaining to fundamental physics issues that underlie the foundations of fiber optics, characterization techniques, and many important materials processing protocols... The incredible breadth of topics discussed goes well beyond the typical book on fibers, and covers new groundbreaking areas such as smart photomechanical materials and fiber-based switching devices. I highly recommend this book as an excellent reference, a resource to students studying fiber optics and to seasoned experts who will enjoy the fresh approach to old topics...
- David Welker, President, Paradigm Optics, Vancouver

...Comprehensive, well written, original, and both broad and deep in scope... Knowing [Dr. Kuzyk] as I do, the high quality and superb exposition were a given... I'm certain the upcoming generation of scientists, as well as experienced practitioners of polymer fiber optics will appreciate this book for years to come...

-Rick Lytel, ISR, Inc., Mountain View, California
