Abstract
Theoretical analysis of stratified media imaging with a Linnik-type low-coherence interference microscope is presented. Expressions describing the interference microscope image formation in the case of arbitrary coherence properties of illumination are derived. The particular case of spatially incoherent illumination is further analyzed and the effects of numerical aperture size and spectral properties of illumination are shown. The derived theory can be useful for determination of optimal parameters of the interference microscope system for the object fine structure visualization. The theory can also be applied for analysis of other types of interference microscopes.
