Abstract

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 μ m resolution. Depth-resolved en face images are obtained at 30 frames per second , with a field of view of 800 × 100 μ m , 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.
