Title (EN) ADAPTIVE SCANNING OPTICAL MICROSCOPE
(FR) MICROSCOPE OPTIQUE DE SCANNAGE ADAPTATIF
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An adaptive scanning optical microscope (Fig. 1, 10) has a scanner lens assembly (16) for acquiring images from different parts of a object plane and for forming a preferably curved image field having at least some aberration which vanes as a function of the part of the object plane from which the image is acquired. A steering mirror selects the field of view and steers light from the object and along a light path from the object plane to a final image plane. An adaptive optics element (18) receives the steered light from the object and compensates for the field position dependent optical aberrations and additional optics are along at least part of the light pat for conditioning and focusing the light as it moves from the steering mirror, past the adaptive optics element and to the final image plane.
(FR)L'invention concerne un microscope optique de scannage adaptatif qui comprend un ensemble de lentilles de scanneur permettant d'acquérir des images de différentes parties d'un plan d'objet et de former un champ d'image courbé possédant au moins certaine aberration qui varie comme une fonction de la partie du plan d'objet, à partir duquel l'image est acquise. Un miroir de guidage permet de sélectionner le champ de vue et de guider la lumière à partir de l'objet et le long d'une voie de lumière du plan de l'objet à un plan d'image final. Un élément optique adaptatif permet de recevoir la lumière guidée provenant de l'objet et de compenser la position du champ dépendant des aberrations optiques et des dispositifs optiques sont situés le long d'au moins une partie de la voie de lumière de manière à conditionner et focaliser la lumière, à mesure qu'elle se déplace du miroir de guidage, le long de l'élément optique adaptatif, et jusqu'au plan d'image final.
