Abstract

A line-scanning tomographic optical microscope system requires precise rotation of the scanning line. Center of rotation error introduced by both the imprecision of optical and mechanical components is studied experimentally and via simulations. It was shown that a practical tolerance limit can be chosen where the influence of the investigated error on the reconstructed image quality remains insignificant. An effective and simply practical solution was presented to keep the center of rotation error below this tolerance limit and the spatial resolution of the reconstructed image close to the diffraction limit.
