Real-time white light reflection confocal microscopy using a fibre-optic bundle

SCANNING 19 (1): 15-19 JAN 1997 Juskaitis R, Wilson T, Watson TF

We describe a real-time white light reflection confocalmicroscope incorporating an optical fibre bundle andcharacterise the optical performance of the bundle. The use ofan incoherent light source enables us, for the first time, to presentspeckle-free endoscopic reflected light confocal images.The system has potential application for in vivo studies.
