Abstract
Disordered optical fibers show novel waveguiding properties that can be used for various device applications, such as beam-multiplexed optical communications and endoscopic image transport. The quality of the transported image is shown to be comparable with or better than some of the best commercially available multicore image fibers with less pixelation and higher contrast. Progress and results, as well as ongoing efforts on the design, fabrication, and characterization of the disordered optical fibers will be discussed.
