Author Affiliations +
This letter proposes a method of configuring a testing target to evaluate the performance of adaptive optics microscopes. In this method, a testing slide with fluorescent beads is used to simultaneously determine the point spread function and the field of view. The point spread function is reproduced to simulate actual biological samples by etching a microstructure on the cover glass. The fabrication process is simplified to facilitate an onsite preparation. The artificial tissue consists of solid materials and silicone oil and is stable for use in repetitive experiments.
