Paper Abstract

We measure the form of the point spread function in the three main configurations of 4 Pi microscopy as well as the traditional confocal arrangement. We confirm, for the first time experimentally, the equivalence between the 4 Pi (A) and 4 Pi (B) geometries. We measure a 6.9 fold increase in axial resolution over the confocal case.
