Paper Abstract

Pupil filters for improving optical sectioning property of confocal microscope are presented. These pupil filters reduce the central lobe of the axial point spread function (PSF), accompanied by a sever increase of strength of the second lobes, which make them impossible to use in conventional imaging systems. While to confocal scanning microscope, an important reduction of the central lobe in axial PSF is achieved with low sidelobe.
