This work demonstrates a computational method for predicting the light propagation through a single multimode fiber using a deep neural network. The experiment for gathering training and testing data is performed with a digital micro-mirror device that enables the spatial light modulation. The modulated patterns on the device and the captured intensity-only images by the camera form the aligned data pairs. This sufficiently-trained deep neural network frame has very excellent performance for…

Deep learning the high variability and randomness inside multimode fibres

This work shows the successful binary image transmission using deep learning through a single MMF subject to dynamic shape variations and finds that a convolutional neural network has excellent generalization capability with various MMF transmission states to accurately predict unknown information at the other end of the MMF at any of these states.

Neural-network-based multimode fiber imaging and position sensing under thermal perturbations

Multimode fibers (MMFs) have a very large number of propagating modes per unit area and therefore allow for imaging with a very large number of pixels relative to their diameter. This makes MMFs
