Abstract
To allow computer synthesis of the response of commercial multifiber optical proximity probes, an investigation was made of the response of a single pair of fibers. A theoretical and experimental analysis was made of the coupling of an illuminating and receiving fiber through reflection off a dull or specular target. A computer program was developed that superposes the responses of all fiber pairs in a probe that may contain up to 2400 fibers, with a total of 12002 pairings maximum. A comparison is made between the computed and measured response of an actual probe.
