Theoretical and experimental investigation of the reflection-type double-pass confocal microscope with a phase-conjugate mirror are presented. The axial and lateral resolution of this microscope is improved compared to the conventional confocal microscope. The observation volume is reduced by about 63 percent. Due to the properties of a phase-conjugate mirror the system is self-aligning.
