Paper Abstract

In the confocal scanning light microscope a specific volume is sampled during the imaging process. The physical process is explained, together with how the size of the pinholes used affect the actual size of this volume. The thus produced 3-D imaging is of high quality but subject to a number of limitations. A novel (bilateral scanning) arrangement is presented that may relieve some of these. In this approach, a double-sided scanning mirror element and a charge coupled device (CCD for image collection) are used.
