fiber bundle

[′fī·bər ‚bən·dəl]
(mathematics)
A bundle whose total space is a G-space X, whose base is the homomorphic image of the orbit space of X, and whose fibers are isomorphic to the orbits of points in the base space under the action of G.
(optics)
A flexible bundle of glass or other transparent fibers, parallel to each other, used in fiber optics to transmit a complete image from one end of the bundle to the other.

fiber bundle

(1) A set of adjacent optical fibers running in parallel and adhered together. It is used for transmitting light to brighten an area as well as transmitting whole images, but not for digital communications.

(2) A collection of optical fibers.

During the subsequent process of being compounded with basalt fibers, as 0D nanoSi[O.sub.2] has high surface energy and similar polarity to basalt fibers, its high affinity with basalt fibers overcomes the aggregating force between adjacent basalt fibers, enabling 0D nanoSi[O.sub.2] to infiltrate into basalt fiber bundles and to adsorb onto basalt fiber surfaces.
It can be seen from Figure 9 that the breakage of the fiber bundles and the crushing of the matrix were both on the surface of and inside the target.
In this case, the lap shear was mostly affected by the mortar filling in the volume between the fiber bundles. While, in the case of the pullout force, the penetration depth in between the single fibers appeared to be the most influential factor.
The fiber bundles were stored as .mat file in Matlab 2014b.
Consider a fiber bundle F [right arrow] M [arrow.p] B where F, M, B are closed manifolds and f:M[right arrow]Ma fiber-preserving map over B.
All measured traits showed obvious DIF and varietal differences except the length of fiber bundle (LFB) and the inter-fiber bundle distance (IFBD).
Type-2 fiber bundles have a larger radius and lower mitochondrial density than Type-1 fiber bundles.
This is because lumen inside the fiber bundle increases the amount of fiber, which results in high absorption coefficient.
The unevenness directly influences the degree of alignment of fibers at micro level in the fiber bundles of yarn.
The flexible fiber bundle (Fujikura FIGH-15-600N) has 15,000 pixels with a working distance of 5 mm.
