Abstract
Confocal imaging systems rely on the use of an accurately positioned axial point detector. We discuss in this paper the effects on the various confocal imaging modes of using a misaligned or finite sized detector. We show, in particular, that the axial resolution of the system is considerably less sensitive to detector size than is the lateral resolution.
