Abstract
In this work we discuss the role of polarization in confocal microscopy. The effect of the optical system on light polarization is analyzed in the absence of a specimen. We also present numerical results on confocal microscopes imaging small dielectric scatterers and suggest an optimum pinhole size for crossed linear polars. Finally, imaging of large spherical scatterers and contrast optimization of the optical system is discussed.
