  • What is Fluorescence Microscope?

    A fluorescence microscope is a type of optical microscope that uses a high-intensity light source to illuminate the specimen and excite fluorochromes in the sample. The illumination of the specimen is usually done with a light source that emits ultraviolet light. They are widely used in biological, medical and industrial fields.

  • What is Polarizing Microscope?

    Polarizing microscope is a type of microscope that uses polarized light to study the optical properties of materials. It is mainly used in geological studies to study geological specimens. For this reason, it is also known as a petrographic microscope. Recently it has become more widely used in medical and biological research fields, too.

  • What is Metallurgical Microscope?

    A metallurgical microscope is another type of light microscope. These microscopes are different from the typical biological microscopes in that they use the principle of reflected light. They use vertical illumination, and the light source is inserted through a beam splitter into a microscope tube below the eyepiece. Light comes down through the objective and is focused on the specimen through the objective. Light reflected or scattered back to the objective lens is then imaged on the eyepiece.

  • What is Laser Scanning Confocal Microscopy?

    Confocal microscopy is a technique in optical imaging that uses point illumination via a spatial pinhole to eliminate out of-focus signals. The excitation light in confocal microscopy is usually provided by a laser to generate high intensities of fluorescence or reflectance from the focal spot.

  • What are the classifications of microscope objectives?

    Objective lens is the most important optical component of microscope. It is composed of several lenses to overcome the imaging defect of single lens and improve the optical quality of objective lens. The quality of objective lens is the primary criterion to measure the quality of a microscope.

  • How to Calculate the Magnification of a Monocular Zoom Microscope?

    In this article, we will discuss the calculation of the magnification for the monocular zoom microscope which with modern design concept, high resolution, long working distance and large magnification. They are mainly used in electronic industry, small precision parts inspection, assembly, repair, especially for observation for surface structure. They can also be applied to biological anatomy, jewelry inspection, and schools academic use.
