Abstract : Optical imaging data sampled through a sensing array of spaced receiving end faces of optic fiber bundles, is encoded by the different signal delay lengths of the fibers forming the respective bundles. The geometry of such end faces in the array is such as to effect encoding in dependence on-the angular orientation and position of sampled segments of the optical data relative to the end faces on which such sampled segments impinge.
