Responding to what it calls a lack of information on companies and organizations in the plastic optical fiber (POF) industry, Information Gatekeepers is offering the “POF Sourcebook” through its Web site. In a recent press release, the group claims the book is the first complete compilation of companies, research and development centers, universities, and other organizations involved in the research, development, production, and marketing of POF components.

The directory lists contact information and a description of POF activities for more than 150 companies and organizations in the United States, Europe, and Japan. In addition, the source book outlines major trends in the industry.

Copies of the book are available for $995 at www.igigroup.com. PDF versions are also available for $1,495.
