Paper Abstract

Following a trend to miniaturization in technology, new light-weight optical tools are required for inspection. Based on recent advances in chip technology, including small CCD-cameras, highly portable optical inspection instruments have been developed. A fiber optic illuminated hand microscope with a remote light source and incorporated video control unit, capable of automatic or manual light flux control, guarantees constant color temperature. Different aspects of light transmission through various optical devices are explored.
