Paper Abstract

The imaging properties of a confocal microscope depend, essentially, on the form of detector used and the lens pupil functions. We consider the use of coherent detectors and discuss an enhancement of the straight edge response by the use of a simple filter. We also show that confocal operation is achieved if a suitable optical fiber is used as a detector.
