Paper Abstract

Confocal imaging systems rely on the use of an accurately positioned axial point detector. We discuss in this paper the effects on the various confocal imaging modes of using a misaligned or finite sized detector. We show, in particular, that the axial resolution of the system is considerably less sensitive to detector size than is the lateral resolution.
