Abstract

Line-scanning tomographic optical microscopy (LSTOM) requires precise rotation of the scanning line. We demonstrate a method that applies translation-invariant optical elements (polarizer and birefringent plate) to minimize the rotation error. An astigmatic line produced by means of a focused beam through a birefringent plate is used as line illumination. A comparative theoretical and experimental study is presented using an LSTOM system.
