Abstract:

We have supplied fibers for confocal microscopy for the Wellman Institute at Harvard, such that we have a guiding core and a cladding around it that satisfies a specific numerical aperture. We have also done preliminary work an a HD x-ray that uses collimated bundles, in that they have nanoscale scintillating ceramics in the cores of the fibers. Fundamental problems in PMB Polarization Mode Bearing will be explored, in that they can provide a more sensitive measure of optical fiber performance.
