Paper Abstract

The angular distribution of the photon pairs of a Zeeman laser scanning confocal microscope (ZLSCM) is measured in turbid media. By scanning the pinhole at different locations on a focal plane, the angular distribution of the snake photon pairs that is contributed by the object plane in the scattering medium is measured. The narrower width of the angular distribution of the snake photon pairs implies the better performance of the depth resolution of ZLSCM in turbid media. In this study, the dependence between depth resolutions of ZLSCM with respect to different vol. % concentrations of the scattering medium is observed. In addition, the correlation between angular distribution and depth resolution in different concentrations is also demonstrated and discussed.
