The infrared confocal microscope described here is a component of a final composite acoustic-infrared-visible confocal microscope system to be constructed on a common base to enable visualization and comparison of images, obtained by three different imaging modalities of the same tissue. The confocal scanning infrared microscope has been constructed on an optical bench with standard optical components and a monochromator as the infrared source enabling various wavelength studies. The principle of confocality offers the opportunity of optical sectioning of the tissue enabling three dimensional visualization of structures.
