Paper Abstract

Miniaturization of silica-based ultrathin imagefibers is needed to serve more medical applications in diagnostic imaging. However, by reducing the pixel element size rapidly, the imagefibers were found to have the characteristics of the single-mode imagefiber. The optical properties of the ultrathin imagefiber with the LP11 mode cutoff wavelength within the visible wavelength region, which is called the single-mode imagefiber, have been studied. The studies found that the property of wavelength selective propagation associated with single-mode ultrathin imagefibers can be applied to the field of biomedical diagnostic imaging as a fluorescence sensor.
