  • plastic fiber Fiber in which both core and cladding are made of plastic.
  • plastic lens A lens made from transparent plastic material. Lenses over 31/2 in. in diameter are usually machined, ground and polished. Smaller lenses are usually injection molded, the mount surrounding the lens often being molded in place at the same time. As...
  • plastic jackets The direct cladding used for fused silica cores to create large numerical aperture fibers and used as overcoats to glass-clad fibers to reduce microbend loss and increase mechanical protection.
  • plastic-clad silica (PCS) fiber An optical waveguide having a silica core and a plastic cladding.
