Paper Abstract

Through the improvement of quality and manufacturing process of glass device named "SELF001W, which was introduced at SPIE of January, 1970, the several kinds of new SELFOOV lenses, in which SELFOCO lenses having different view angles, SELFOd lens of large diameter, SELFOOt4 lens with low chromatic abberation and high quality SELF0a) lens array are included, have been developed. We also succeeded in developing fused fiber plate and flexible image bundle of high quality and low cost by improving the manufacturing process. At the same time, we developed several types of unique endoscopes whose image transmitting devices were composed of the optical glass devices mentioned above. In those unique endoscopes, there are an arthroscope having the thinnest inserting needle in the world and flexible endoscopes for industrial and medical purposes of which costs are very low in spite of their high performances.
