I am reading up on optical fibers and there's one thing I haven't understood yet:
- Does an optical fiber preserve the angles of incoming light?
For example, if we light two LEDs in front of an optical fiber (within its acceptance cone) and hold the other end of the fiber in front of a paper, would we see two separate light dots on the paper (because the angles of the incoming light were preserved), or just one (because the angles were messed up...)?
(Another way of posing this question: What would I see if I looked into the end of an optical fiber – would I see what's in front (within the acceptance cone) of the other end of the fiber or just a blurry dot? - disregarding I would need extremely good eyesight etc...)
