Title: LIGHT MICROSCOPE AND METHOD FOR PROVIDING STRUCTURED ILLUMINATION LIGHT
Abstract:
A light microscope comprises:a structuring optical unit comprising a waveguide chip for providing a structured illumination;an input selection device for variably directing light to one of several inputs of the waveguide chip; the waveguide chip further comprising a light guide path following each of the inputs; each light guide path divides into several path divisions; and each path division leads to one output of the wave-guide chip. The outputs of the waveguide chip can be arranged at a pupil plane of the light microscope, and an exit direction of light from the outputs is transverse to a plane defined by the waveguide chip. A method for providing structured illumination light using the light microscope is also described.
