Abstract
Synchronous operation of a confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM) and a confocal vector contrast scanning acoustic microscope (phase sensitive scanning acoustic microscopy: PSAM) has been developed. Imaging is performed on objects mounted on a cover slide with the CLSM operated in reflection through the slide with an immersion fluid and PSAM operating in water respectively aqueous solutions from the other side (half space). Examples involving living cells and soft matter samples illustrating various combinatory schemes and advantages of multi-contrast optical and acoustic contrast are demonstrated. This includes combinations with fluorescence microscopy and ultrasonic topographical imaging as well as combinatory three-dimensional imaging.
