We developed a multimodal microscopy based on an optical scanning system in order to obtain diverse optical information of the same area of a sample. Multimodal imaging researches have mostly depended on a commercial microscope platform, easy to use but restrictive to extend imaging modalities. In this work, the beam scanning optics, especially including a relay lens, was customized to transfer broadband (400–1000 nm) lights to a sample without any optical error or loss. The customized scanning optics guarantees the best performances of imaging techniques utilizing the lights within the design wavelength. Confocal reflection, confocal fluorescence, and two-photon excitation fluorescence images were obtained, through respective implemented imaging channels, to demonstrate imaging feasibility for near-UV, visible, near-IR continuous light, and pulsed light in the scanning optics. The imaging performances for spatial resolution and image contrast were verified experimentally; the results were satisfactory in comparison with theoretical results. The advantages of customization, containing low cost, outstanding combining ability and diverse applications, will contribute to vitalize multimodal imaging researches.
