Abstract
The use of a confocal pinhole-array in a real-time two-photon fluorescence microscope with a microlens array is proposed to increase the three-dimensional resolution and the depth- penetration property. Enhancement of the lateral and axial resolution in the proposed microscope is observed in our experiments. Comparisons of images taken with and without the pinhole-array to verify the sharp depth-imaging performance are shown.
