Abstract

A new method, to our knowledge, for real-time direct access to depth information in scanning fluorescence microscopy is reported. It is based on axially exciting the sample and detecting the phase and intensity of the emitted light. Results obtained using an axicon lens to generate a Bessel beam for excitation and a microlens array as phase detector are presented.
