Comparison of imaging fiber bundles for coherence-domain imaging


In this article researchers report on experiments to improve understanding of the basic physical properties of imaging fiber bundles for applications in coherence imaging such as optical coherence tomography.

Using an imaging spectrograph with a large, sensitive detector on the end of an optical interferometer allows the team to perform detailed measurements of fiber bundles. Their results show that current commercial fiber bundles are not yet suitable of coherence imaging applications and encourage further research and development in that area.
