The LSM 5 PASCAL is a light microscopy system which acquires images in defined optical sections of your material sample by means of a laser beam in a confocal path, and assembles them into a three-dimensional image stack.
Finest optical slices in the submicrometer range
Laser light coupled into the microscope hits the sample at the objective focus. The light reflected or emitted by the sample surface passes the objective and is collected by a tube lens. In this way, the laser beam converges at a second focal point, which is optically conjugate to the first. A pinhole arranged in this confocal plane ensures that only light from the focal plane reaches the detector, whereas light reflected or emitted by regions above or below it is completely blocked off. This enhances contrast and improves lateral and axial resolution.
