Abstract: front page image
(EN)Provided is a confocal microscope apparatus that facilitates the adjustment procedure when obtaining confocal images and whereby the device is made smaller. The confocal microscope apparatus (1) is provided with a fiber light source (2) that shines illuminating light (L1), a prism array mask (6) wherein first transmission parts (15a) that transmit a first component (L2) of the fluorescence from Sample (A) that returns along the direction of incidence of the illuminating light and illuminating light (L1), and second transmission parts (15b) that transmit and diffract a second component (L3), which is other than the first component (L2), of the fluorescence in a direction that differs from the first component (L2), are alternately arranged, an imaging element (11A) that receives the first component (L2) transmitted through the first transmission parts (15a) and an imaging element (11B) that receives the second component (L3) transmitted through the second transmission parts (15b). A confocal image of the object is formed based on image data obtained by the imaging elements (11A) and (11B).
(FR)L'invention concerne un microscope confocal qui facilite la procédure d'ajustement, lors de l'obtention d'images confocales, le dispositif étant plus petit. Le microscope confocal (1) est doté d'une source optique de fibres (2) qui irradie de la lumière (L1), un masque en réseau de prismes (6), dans lequel des premières parties de transmission (15a) qui transmettent un premier composant (L2) de la fluorescence de l'échantillon (A) qui retourne dans le sens d'incidence de la lumière et la lumière (L1), et des secondes parties de transmission (15b) qui transmettent et diffractent un second composant (L3) différent du premier composant (L2), de la fluorescence dans un sens différent du premier composant (L2), sont placés de manière alternative. Le microscope comprend également un élément d'imagerie (11A) qui reçoit un premier composant (L2) transmis par les premières partie de transmission (15a) et un élément d'imagerie (11B) qui reçoit le second composant (L3) transmis par les secondes parties (15b). Une image confocale de l'objet est formée sur la base des données d'images obtenues par les éléments d'imagerie (11A) et (11B).
(JA) 共焦点画像を得る際の調整作業を容易にし、かつ装置を小型化すること。 この共焦点顕微鏡装置1は、照明光L1を照射するファイバ光源2と、試料Aからの蛍光のうち照明光の入射方向に沿って戻る第1の成分L2、及び照明光L1を透過する第1の透過部15aと、蛍光のうち第1の成分L2以外の第2の成分L3を、第1の成分L2とは異なる方向に透過及び屈折させる第2の透過部15bとが交互に配列されたプリズムアレイマスク6と、第1の透過部15aを透過した第1の成分L2を受光する撮像素子11Aと、第2の透過部15bを透過した第2の成分L3を受光する撮像素子11Bとを備え、撮像素子11A,11Bによって得られた画像データに基づいて、対象物の共焦点画像を生成する。
