Non-Coherent Bundles—Applications

  • W. B. Allan
Part of the Optical Physics and Engineering book series (OPEG)


The applications of non-coherent bundles of optical fibres constitute the major area of utilization of this technology at the present time, and this situation is likely to continue in the foreseeable future. This is because these are the simplest assemblies of optical fibres and therefore offer the greatest scope in variations of design and construction.
