We demonstrate coherent imaging through a phased array of single-mode optical fibers. Specifically, we show that two laboratory point sources located within the individual-fiber single-mode acceptance angle can be resolved. Such techniques could eventually enable direct imaging with arrays of small collecting telescopes.
