Paper Abstract

With using 5 glass spheres of 5mm diameter, a linear and a curvilinear array arrangement were realized and an image on a paper was transferred similarly for both arrangements. When the number of sphere was varied in the array, the transfered image was varied form normal to reversed and reversed to normal. By using polystyrene micro-sphere of 10 (mu) m diameter, a laser light was propagated in a linear and a curvilinear array. For a laser light at a wave length of 670nm, the attenuation coefficient was evaluated to be 0.051dB/sphere in the linear array. The attenuation coefficient was increased for the curvilinear array. The image and the light transfer in the sphere array are attractive for new optical device application.
