Abstract

We describe a new parallel scanning mechanism for confocal microscopy that is inherently fiber-optic compatible and that retains the simplicity of the line scanning confocal microscope. The method works by employing an incoherent fiber-optic bundle that maps a line illumination pattern back on itself on double passing, while separating the fibers that carry photons from out-of-focus sample planes. The transformation permits efficient rejection of out-of-focus photons by a slit aperture.
