Paper Abstract

A technique is presented for improving 3-D resolution in confocal scanning microscopy. The technique is based on the equal contribution to the image of the illuminating and the collecting lenses. It is proposed, then, to apodize such lenses with complementary filters. The combined action of both filters produces a narrowness of the point spread function of the system both in the image plane, and along the optical axis.
