Ultrahigh-resolution fiber-optic image guides—fused image fiber, faceplate, and taper—were fabricated by using microstructured polymer optical fiber (MPOF) preforms composed of two polymers: polymethylmethacrylate and polystyrene. The pixel diameter in the resultant MPOF-based image guides was as small as 3 μ m . The imaging capabilities of these types of fiber-optic elements were demonstrated.
