Over the past few years the innovative optical-electrical combination conductor system CONDUS has been developed and investigated at the Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences. This invention is patented in many countries and opens completely new fields for applications [1]. The principal item of the optical-electrical system CONDUS is a combination of an electrical conductor (e.g. a copper wire) with a coat of an optical polymer (see Figs. 1 und 2). The optical cover of the...
