The design of a confocal microscope including a fiber-optic imaging bundle is discussed, and experimental results are presented. The imaging bundle extends the range of the confocal microscope to image samples inaccessible to a conventional confocal system. The main advantage of this design over the single-fiber confocal microscope is the simplified mechanism required in the sample region. Applications of this design include biological research, industrial inspection, and potentially in-vivo medical systems.
