Abstract

We present a new method of superresolving pupil-plane filter design in confocal microscopy in which we specify the properties of the desired point-spread function and use an optimization procedure to determine a suitable pupil-plane filter. A new, flexible method of filter implementation using reconfigurable binary optical elements is described, and experimental results are presented.
