Title Microscope objective with integrated laser-scanner

In this project a laser-scanning confocal microscope will be developed. In such a microscope, a focussed laser-beam is raster-scanned over the sample while at each pixel the intensity of the reflected light is recorded. From the recorded intensity values, a microscope image is reconstructed.
