Based on the high-resolution imaging property of the products of optical fiber material, a novel imaging system is proposed. The prototype of the system is made by coupling CCD chip(CMOS) and a large-scale optical fiber faceplate together. Firstly, the working principle and manufacturing process of large-scale optical fiber faceplate is described. Secondly, the effectiveness and practicability of the prototype of the system is verified by experiment. Finally, the potential application prospect of the imaging system is discussed. The theoretical analysis and experimental result show that the prototype works perfectly under high temperature and pressure condition and the resolution of the image that obtained by the imaging system is larger than 70 lp/mm, which can satisfy the basic imaging requirements in the research fields such as medical diagnosis, industrial detection and monitoring. Further, the novel imaging system provides a new approach for the application of optical fiber product in scientific research.
