Paper Abstract

Following a need of change from large to small dimensions in technology, research and manufacturing, new light-weight optical tools are required. Based on recent advances in chip- technology and microtechnique, small CCD-cameras, able to be integrated in handy optical instruments, were developed. The fiber optical hand microscope, supplied by a remote light source with incorporated video-control unit, capable of automatic or manual light flux adjustment, guarantees constant illumination of high color temperature. Different aspects about light transmission through various optical devices are discussed.
