|Title:||Optimization of axial resolution in a confocal microscope with D-shaped apertures||Authors:||Gong, W.
|Issue Date:||10-Jul-2009||Citation:||Gong, W., Si, K., Sheppard, C.J.R. (2009-07-10). Optimization of axial resolution in a confocal microscope with D-shaped apertures. Applied Optics 48 (20) : 3998-4002. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1364/AO.48.003998||Abstract:||We show theoretically that the axial resolution is improved when two centrosymmetric D-shaped apertures are combined in a confocal microscope with a finite-sized pinhole. The optimum width of a divider that separates the D-shaped apertures to give the maximum axial resolution for a given pinhole size is investigated, and the magnitude of the signal level is explored. © 2009 Optical Society of America.||Source Title:||Applied Optics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/67201||ISSN:||00036935||DOI:||10.1364/AO.48.003998|
