Confocal microscopes are finding a great many applications in biology, the other life sciences, opthtamology, industrial inspection, and semiconductor linewidth metrology. Concentrating on the science and applications of confocal microscopy, this book includes all the latest developments in three-dimensional processing techniques. The physical basis of imaging as welll as practical methods by which images are obtained in both laser-based and tandem scanning confocal microscopes are covered. Examples from all major applications are included.
