Paper Abstract

Spectrally encoded confocal microscopy (SECM) is a novel approach for high resolution, depth-sectioned imaging of tissue microstructure. By encoding one spatial dimension in wavelength, imaging probes can be simplified enabling endoscopic implementation. The novel use of a single-optical-axis element based on high index-of-refraction prisms and a transmission grating enables the design of narrow diameter SECM devices. Images were obtained from a 10.0 mm probe with 1.1 μm transverse resolution and a 650 μm FOV.
