Abstract
We have developed a new laboratory version of a reflected-light holographic confocal microscope (HCM). The confocal imaging capability with the depth discrimination have been verified by the measurement of the axial intensity response for a perfect plane mirror. The considerable improvement of axial resolution is achieved without necessity of high-NA objectives using broadband illumination. The operating principle of the mechanisms employed in a laboratory version of the HCM is outlined.
