Paper Abstract

An illumination system is developed for a microscope with a newly developed straight-type Xe flash tube as the light source. An optical fiber is used as the light transmitter to connect the microscope and the light source. The axis of the fiber is coincided to that of the plasma excited in the Xe flash tube. The efficiency of the light beam injected to the fiber is improved up to 5 times of that of the conventional type illumination system.
