Title (EN) MECHANICAL JOINT FOR USE IN FIBER OPTIC IMAGING SYSTEMS
(FR) JOINT MÉCANIQUE À UTILISER DANS DES SYSTÈMES D'IMAGERIE À FIBRE OPTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus includes an optical fiber, an actuator, and a joint mechanically coupling the actuator to the optical fiber. The joint includes a neck extending along an axis. The optical fiber is threaded through an aperture extending along the axis through the neck. The optical fiber is attached to the joint at a surface of the neck facing the axis. The joint also includes a collar extending along the axis. The actuator is mechanically attached to the joint at an inner surface of the collar facing the axis. The joint also includes a flexural element extending radially from the neck to the collar. During operation, the joint couples a force from the actuator to the optical fiber to vary an orientation of a portion of the optical fiber extending from the neck with respect to the axis.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil qui comprend une fibre optique, un actionneur et un joint, reliant mécaniquement l'actionneur à la fibre optique. Le joint comprend un collet s'étendant le long d'un axe. La fibre optique est enfilée à travers une ouverture s'étendant le long de l'axe, à travers le collet. La fibre optique est fixée au joint au niveau d'une surface du collet faisant face à l'axe. Le joint comprend également un collier s'étendant le long de l'axe. L'actionneur est fixé mécaniquement au joint, au niveau d'une surface interne du collier faisant face à l'axe. Le joint comprend également un élément de flexion, s'étendant radialement depuis le collet jusqu'au collier. Pendant le fonctionnement, le joint couple une force de l'actionneur à la fibre optique, afin de faire varier l'orientation d'une partie de la fibre optique, s'étendant à partir du collet, par rapport à l'axe.
