Abstract
A scanning optical microscope based on the optics and the mechanics of a Compact Disc player has been constructed. The light and simple construction of a CD player offers the possibility of scanning essentially the entire microscope with respect to a stationary object. The microscope is capable of measuring amplitude and phase changes of the light and is equipped with automatic focussing.
