Abstract

We investigate lensless endoscopy using coherent beam combining and aperiodic multicore fibers (MCF). We show that diffracted orders, inherent to MCF with periodically arranged cores, dramatically reduce the field-of-view (FoV), and that randomness in MCF core positions can increase the FoV up to the diffraction limit set by a single fiber core, while maintaining a MCF experimental feasibility. We demonstrate experimentally pixelation-free lensless endoscopy imaging over a 120 μm FoV with an aperiodic MCF designed with widely spaced cores. We show that this system is suitable to perform beam scanning imaging by simply applying a tilt to the proximal wavefront.
