  • Dual-axes confocal microscopy with post-objective scanning and low-coherence heterodyne detection OPTICS LETTERS Wang, T. D., Contag, C. H., Mandella, M. J., Chan, N. Y., Kino, G. S. 2003; 28 (20): 1915-1917


    We present a dual-axes confocal microscope that employs postobjective scanning and low-coherence heterodyne detection to collect vertical cross-sectional images from biological tissue with high axial resolution, reduced noise from scattered light, deep tissue penetration, and a large dynamic range. This architecture can be scaled down to millimeter dimensions with microelectromechanical systems technology for performance of in vivo optical biopsy.
