Title: Ringlight for use in high radiation

Abstract

A ringlight having an annular array of light-emitting elements centered about a viewing passage has an outer annular body with an inner annular body fitted concentrically within the outer body to form an annular void and a light-emitting aperture therebetween. A plurality of optical fibers extends into the void with end portions of the optical fibers secured therein to form an annular array at the light-emitting aperture. The first and second annular bodies cooperate to angle the end portions of the optical fibers towards a central axis of the viewing passage. 3 figs.
