Abstract

The emission and transmission properties of three commercially produced coherent fiber optic imaging bundles were evaluated. Full fluorescence excitation versus emission data were collected from 250 to 650nm excitation for high-resolution Sumitomo, Fujikura, and Schott fiber bundles. The results generated show regions of autofluorescence and inelastic Raman scattering in the imaging bundles that represent a wavelength-dependent background signal when these fibers are used for imaging applications. The high-resolution fiber bundles also exhibit significant variation in transmission with the angle of illumination, which affects the overall coupling and transmission efficiency. Knowledge of these properties allows users of high-resolution imaging bundles to optimally design systems that utilize such bundles.
