A laser scanning differential interference contrast microscope using a
differential detection method is proposed. This microscope permits observers to
control the differential image contrast with a simple operation. Utilizing this
function, the observers are capable of obtaining the optimized differential
image whose contrast is most favorable for observation. A simple theoretical
analysis and experimental considerations are described.
