Paper Abstract

Confocal techniques allow the user to achieve optically sectioned images with significantly enhanced axial and improved lateral resolution compared to widefield methods. Unfortunately, as one images more deeply within a sample, sample induced aberrations lead to a significant reduction in image resolution and contrast. Using adaptive optic techniques, we report on the effectiveness of a number of algorithms for removing sample induced aberrations. The viability and efficiency at a number of fitness parameters used in the optimisation routines is also considered.
