  • White-Light Confocal System

Photonics Spectra
May 2010
Andor Technology Ltd., Corporate HeadquartersRequest Info
For performing confocal microscopy with a white-light source, Andor Technology plc has launched Revolution DSD, based on a differential spinning disk optical system working in conjunction with an Andor Clara high-sensitivity interline CCD camera and controlled by a proprietary IQ workstation. Using white light, as opposed to lasers, cuts costs. The compact system fits the side port of any microscope and uses active background subtraction to deliver purely confocal or wide-field images, simplifying switching between techniques as well as binding and focusing of the specimen. The system delivers strong optical sectioning even at low magnification and moderate frame rates per second.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
The ratio of the size of the image of an object to that of the object. The ratio of the linear size of the image to that of the object is lateral magnification. Angular magnification is the ratio of the apparent angular size of the image observed through an optical device to that of the object viewed by the unaided eye. Longitudinal magnification is the ratio of the longitudinal or axial dimension of an image to the corresponding dimension of the object.
An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
optical system
A group of lenses, or any combination of lenses, mirrors and prisms,  so constructed as to refract or reflect light to perform some definite optical function.
