I'm glad you enjoyed the fiber optics demo - it's a fun one. You might want to read a few of the articles on our Optics Gallery page for some background information. I have also attached two bibliographies on fiber optics - one specifically on fiber optics in art, and a more general list of fiber optics-based resources. If you're interested in borrowing any of the materials from our library, you can submit an Interlibrary Loan request through your local library. We are a member of the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC), so your library can contact us through OCLC or they may send an Interlibrary Loan form to us by e-mail. We send copies of articles and will also loan certain books if a second copy is available in the library collection. Books are loaned for a four week period. For further information, please see our ILL page.
You might also want to search online using terms such as "fiber optics image transmission" or "fiber optic imaging." These searches will give you results both related to the supplies you need to purchase as well as some explanations of the process. I can't speak to the accuracy of any of these results, but the following are a few sites that may be of use:
- This Schott page talks about some of the components needed for fiber optic imaging.
- This Sci-Spot.com page gives instructions for creating "an 11x11 image pipe."
- This Georgia State University page talks about fiber optics and fiber optic imaging.
The Corning Museum of Glass is currently closed to the public effective March 16 through April 22, 2020, as a precautionary measure for public health and safety. As a result, resources available to answer your questions are extremely limited. During this closure, you may be interested in searching our Ask a Glass Question FAQs or reviewing our Research Guides on various topics. We also highly recommend checking out The Corning Museum of Glass on YouTube for hours of artist demonstrations, lectures, and special events. Thank you for your patience.
