Life Sciences/Medicine

Modern imaging systems help scientists unveil the last secrets of the human body. Their understanding of cellular and molecular processes provides doctors and medical engineers with valuable insights for the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures – many of them using the advantages of laser technology.

Photon Counting in Confocal Microscopy

In confocal microscopy only a diffraction-limited beam spot of the samples is illuminated.


With this beam spot the sample being tested is scanned point by point. The reflected light is detected using a photon counting module for the subsequent reconstruction of the image. Due to the high axial resolution of confocal microscopes, tomographic images can be created that make a 3D reconstruction of the object possible.
