Abstract

A nonscanning technique in which an image of a two-dimensional input transparency is transmitted in parallel through a single, round, step-index optical fiber is described. To ensure that the output display is not smeared, the input light distribution is first spectrally and spatially coded, and after transmission through the optical fiber it is decoded. Both coding and decoding operations are achieved solely by means of conventional, passive optical components.
