Paper Abstract

We present the use of a commercially available electrically tunable lens to achieve axial scanning in a reflectance confocal microscope. Over a 255 μm axial scan range, the lateral and axial resolutions varied from 1-2 μm and 4-14 μm, respectively, dependent on the variable focal length of the tunable lens. Confocal imaging was performed on normal human biopsies from the oral cavity ex vivo. Sub-cellular morphologic features were seen throughout the depth of the epithelium while axially scanning using the focus tunable lens.
