Comparison of imaging fiber bundles for coherence-domain imaging.


Journal Article

Use of imaging fiber bundles for coherence-domain imaging has remained limited to date. In this work, we provide characterization of commercially available imaging bundles for coherence-domain imaging, by evaluating their modal structure for applicability to interferometric imaging. We further examine custom fabricated bundles developed in collaboration with a corporate partner for their ability to reduce interelement optical path length variability and cross talk between elements. The results presented here will serve as a useful guide for comparing fiber bundles for coherence imaging while also offering an improved understanding of the functionality and limitations of imaging bundles for advancing coherent imaging technologies.
