Abstract:

“Lensless fiber microendoscopes enable optical diagnostics and therapy with minimal
invasiveness. Because of their small diameters, multimode fibers are ideal candidates, but mode
scrambling hinders the transmission of structured light fields. We present the generation of a
localized fringe system at variable distances from the distal fiber end by exploiting digital optical
phase conjugation. The replayed fringe system was used for quantitative metrology. Velocity
measurements of a microchannel flow in the immediate proximity of the fiber end without the
use of any imaging lenses are shown. Lensless multimode fiber systems are of interest especially
for biomedical imaging and stimulation as well as technical inspection and flow measurements. ”
