100mm x 3.0 mm diameter solid side glow fibre optic cable

Side glow fibre makes a virtue of the light leakage which occurs in any bare fibre. Typically, more powerful light sources are used with side glow to produce the best effect. Do bear in mind that side glow is a secondary effect and works best where ambient light levels are subdued – you’ll see nothing at all in broad daylight. Where possible, side glow fibre should be looped back to the light source, or daisy-chained between two light sources. Or, if you can’t do this and don’t plan to use the end point light of the fibres, cap the far end with a piece of reflective foil. If you’re unsure whether the fibre will be bright enough for your application, experiment with a short sample before committing yourself to a large purchase.
