...Microscope Introduction: Microscope is a valuable tool in the field of science, as it is used to magnify the specimens for better understandingof the cells and its structures. Since many cells are too small to be seen through the naked eye, microscope is used for the magnification. The main function of microscope is to increase the resolution. If the magnification is higher then the resolution will be higher. (Bisen and Sharma 2012). Microscopes are of two types namely Light microscope and electron microscope. Light microscopes use visible light for illumination using the glasses. Electron microscopes use a beam of electrons focused by magnets on the specimen for magnification. Light... ...

Electron microscopy has essentially been a leap jump from optical microscopy for investigation of characterization of materials. While resolution in case of optical microscope is limited to about 100 mm (a typical best possible value); electron microscopy stretched it down to sub-micrometers (most common SEM resolution) to even sub-nanometer level (a typical... ?Procurement of a Suitable Scanning Electron...

An object under observation is a specimen. There are several types of microscopes including the light microscope. This microscope is also called the optical microscope uses light to illuminate a specimen. It is the most common of all microscopes since schools commonly use it for academic demonstrations. The microscope uses compound lenses in magnifying objects under observation. Lenses in a light microscope refract light during observation to make the specimen underneath seem closer (Colgren and Svedberg, 1989, 17... How to use a...
