Paper Abstract

Chromostereoscopy is a simple optical technique for transforming the colors in a single image into stereoscopic image planes. The process allows the user to control the amount of depth observed and to invert the depth at will. Preliminary work has begun to determine the usefulness of applying this technique to microscopy. Potential benefits of this technique include enhancing the discrimination of color and effecting the spatial isolation of selected colors. A number of standard microscope illumination techniques exist which can produce brilliant multicolored images, often without altering the specimen. Examination of six of these techniques indicates that under selected conditions the chromostereoscopic process can be used with binocular microscopes to create a stereoscopic depth effect.
