Abstract:

We fabricated 6-micrometer-diameter microprobes for in vivo measurements of the point spread function in the rhesus eye. The probes were quartz, pulled over heat to tip diameters of 3-12 micrometers and vapor-coated with chromium Cr. Coupling these probes to a photomultiplier, we measured retinal image intensity profiles for 530, 647, and 1060 nm laser light.
