Spatial, spectral and temporal imaging through multimode optical fibre (2018–2021)
This project aims to develop fundamental technologies for imaging through a multimode fibre that control and
measure each property of light; amplitude, phase, polarisation, wavelength and space as it propagates through an
optical fibre. These aims will be pursued through the development of three prototype systems, where each system
targets a particular property of light. The outcomes would enable multimode fibres to act as ultracompact, generalpurpose
optical conduits into the body through which a wide array of biomedical techniques can be performed in a
minimally invasive fashion not currently possible. This project is also expected to be of significance to the study of
fundamental phenomena in optical fibres.
