Fiber optics themselves are clear and colorless, so a fiber optic lighting system installed in a project will take on whatever color light you shine through it, or undulate with color patterns if your light source is programmable or dynamic.


The plastic fibers function is light shining in one end from a source of illumination, like an LED or a laser, travels down the fiber optic strand and emerges at the other end. Fiber optics come in a variety of diameters, shapes and types.


Side emitting fibers (also called side glow, or side light) are usually larger and more flexible than end emitting fibers.


Because of the way they are constructed, with a cladding that is intentionally less effective, light gradually escapes along the whole length of the fiber creating a fairly even glow almost like a neon tube or el wire. However, some light also escapes from the end of the fiber creating a bright point of light where the fiber is cut. The intensity of the fiber's glow depends on the intensity of the light source. For example, a 1 watt LED or a laser will illuminate the fiber more than a neopixel LED.


Side emitting fibers are much more visible in ambient light than end emitting fibers, but they still create a diffused glow that looks better in darkness. Side emitting fibers are great for projects where you want defined lines of light rather than pinpoint sparkles. 

Fiber Optic light Applications:

  • Interior fiber optic light decoration of Swimming pool, car roof, KTV, pubs, coffee houses, hotels and restaurants;

  • Lighting in some dangerous place like oil depot;

  • Decorative lighting in the park and fairground;

  • Lighting in swimming pool and underwater facilities.

Plastic Optical Fiber
End Glow Plastic Fiber Optic

1.Bare fibre is an uninsulated single core made of PMMA (PolyMethylMethAcrylate) that carries cold light from the illuminator with no electricity or heat in the fibre cable. 2.Uninsulated fibre cables are used for pin point lighting in signs or star ceilings due to the main concentration of light delivered to the end of the fibre cable. Without an outer sheath, light is able to emit from its side creating a soft glow when paired with the correct light source or illuminator. 3. Fiber Optic Application:Light curtain;Fiber optic chandelier;Ceiling star;Pool light;DIY.
