  • Miniature near-infrared dual-axes confocal microscope utilizing a two-dimensional microelectromechanical systems scanner OPTICS LETTERS Liu, J. T., Mandella, M. J., Ra, H., Wong, L. K., Solgaard, O., Kino, G. S., Piyawattanametha, W., Contag, C. H., Wang, T. D. 2007; 32 (3): 256-258


    The first, to our knowledge, miniature dual-axes confocal microscope has been developed, with an outer diameter of 10 mm, for subsurface imaging of biological tissues with 5-7 microm resolution. Depth-resolved en face images are obtained at 30 frames per second, with a field of view of 800 x 100 microm, by employing a two-dimensional scanning microelectromechanical systems mirror. Reflectance and fluorescence images are obtained with a laser source at 785 nm, demonstrating the ability to perform real-time optical biopsy.
