The sole purpose of a flexible incoherent fiber optic bundle is to transmit light from point A to point B; and the major utility of such a bundle lies simply in the freedom allowed the designer when choosing the path connecting A to B. Therefore, one of the primary parameters to be considered in the evaluation of such a bundle is the efficiency with which it transmits. That is, with a given input, what output may be expected for a given length of material? This efficiency determines the sophistication required of the illuminating and/or sensing components employed for a particular application, and t us substantially directs the ultimate cost of the total system.
