Abstract

See full text

An example imaging apparatus that can operate at shortwave infrared (SWIR) wavelengths are provided. An example imaging apparatus may include a fiber optic bundle, a distal lens, an illumination assembly, and an imaging detector. The fiber optic bundle may comprise a plurality of fibers and may be configured to guide light energy at a SWIR wavelength. The distal lens may be disposed on a distal end of the fiber optic bundle and the distal lens configured to focus light energy at the SWIR wavelength. The illumination assembly may be configured to output illumination at the SWIR wavelength adjacent to the distal end of the fiber optic bundle toward an object. The imaging detector may be operably coupled to a proximal end of the fiber optic bundle and configured to receive imaging light energy at the SWIR wavelength reflected from the object and guided through the fiber optic bundle.
