Paper Abstract

This paper describes a new optical microscope that can simultaneously acquire images with differential phase and differential intensity contrast. The instrument has a confocal response, thereby eliminating flare from features out of the plane of focus, and an existing capability of actively controlling the microscope transfer function electronically. Images are shown that demonstrate the operation of the system
