This section provides an overview of fiberscopes.

Features of fiberscope

A fiberscope is an instrument that consists of a bundle of optical fibers with a lens and eyepiece at the end. You can take an image with the lens and capture and view the image with the eyepiece on the other side.

Since the main body is very thin, there is only a small gap, so even if it is a structure, you can insert it inside and check the inside. It is also highly flexible, making it easy to insert structures with complex structures or curved paths.

Due to this property, fiberscopes are used in many things. See “Using a Fiberscope” for a specific example.
