Here, we will introduce the history of the invention of fiberscopes.
Fiberscope that has continued to evolve
The glass fiber (glass fiber) that makes up the fiberscope was born in the United States in the 1960s. Due to the property of transmitting light from glass from end to end, it is now possible to see through this glass fiber inside a structure that cannot be physically seen inside.
Twenty years later, in the 1980s, a videoscope was born that allowed photography by attaching a CCD chip to the tip of a fiberscope. Now multiple people can view real-time images at the same time.
Since then, it has continued to evolve, and now the image quality is higher and the size is smaller, and fiberscopes for various purposes are emerging.
