Polymer Fiber Delivers High-Res Remote Imaging

Polymer Fiber Delivers High-Res Remote Imaging

OMC’s new coherent polymer fiber, which consists of over 7000 individual polymer fiber cores, opens the door to high-resolution remote imaging. The cores are arranged coherently at each end so that the image incident on one fiber face is visible on the other face.

The high-tensile fiber comes in 2.0- and 2.5- diameters, and features a robust outer protection layer to protect the cores. It offers a lower-cost remote-imaging solution in applications that don’t require the extremely small diameters of coherent glass fiber (such as those used to image inside blood vessels). Specific applications include high-precision sensing, remote vision, passive surveillance, and imaging in inaccessible areas.
