Paper Abstract

We demonstrate two kinds of scanning laser microscopes which include phase conjugation. One is a 4 Pi confocal fluorescence/scattering microscope whose backward beam is generated with a phase conjugation mirror. The other is a double-pass absorption microscope in which a phase conjugation mirror is used. Both of the two scanning microscopes have advantages in small amount of aberrations and in freedom from precise alignment. Theoretical analysis of the imaging characteristics and several experiments with the two microscopes using cerium doped barium titanate crystal are shown.
