Workings of Confocal Microscopy

This video shows the operation of confocal microscopy. Confocal microscopy is used in diagnostics in dermatology and ophthalmology, for instance, to create virtual sections via the tissue structure, or to detect the structure of the sample surface via the shift of the focal plane. Piezo-based drive solutions position the objective at a distance of less than 1 µm on different focal planes. The individual images are subsequently superimposed to produce a high-resolution 3D image.
