Homework Help: Find the axial resolution achieved for confocal microscope

  1. Nov 17, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations

    F-number is f/d

    x0 = 1.2λ(fnumber)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Fnumber1 = 0.2
    Fnumber2 = 0.6

    x01 = 180nm
    x02 = 540nm

    These values seem large for depth resolution, is this correct?
