Fibre optic time-resolved spectroscopy using CMOS-SPAD arrays

Ehrlich, A. Kufcsák, N. Krstajić, R. K. Henderson, R. R. Thomson and M. G. Tanner

The title of this paper means using an optical fibre to collect the light emitted from specific chemical substances called fluorophores and to transport the light to an instrument which is equipped with a special sensor to collect spectral information of the emitted light as well as the arrival time of the light at the sensor.

Quantitative characterisation of endoscopic imaging fibres

H. Wood, K. Harrington, J. M. Stone, T. A. Birks, and J. C. Knight

The title of this paper means assigning a number to the performance of imaging fibres thin enough to image within the human body. We detail a technique that uses an interference pattern (light and dark vertical lines) as a standard to be imaged by the test fibre.
