Confocal 3D reflectance imaging through multimode fiber without wavefront shaping

Posted on 13.01.2022 - 22:38
Imaging through optical multimode fiber (MMF) has the potential to enable hair-thin endoscopes that reduce the invasiveness of imaging deep inside tissues and organs. Active wavefront shaping and fluorescent labeling have recently been exploited to overcome modal scrambling and enable MMF imaging. Here, we present a computational approach that circumvents the need for active wavefront control and exogenous fluorophores. We demonstrate the reconstruction of depth-gated confocal images through MMF using a raster-scanned, focused input illumination at the fiber proximal end. We demonstrate the compatibility of this approach with quantitative phase, dark-field, and polarimetric imaging. Computational imaging through MMF opens a new pathway for minimally invasive imaging in medical diagnosis and biological investigations.
