Over the last decade, advances in science and technology have profoundly changed the face of light microscopy. Research scientists need to learn new skills in order to use a modern research microscopeskills such as how to align microscope optics and perform image processing. Fundamentals of Light Microscopy and Electronic Imaging explores the basics of microscope design and use. The comprehensive material discusses the optical principles involved in diffraction and image formation in the light microscope, the basic modes of light microscopy, the components of modern electronic imaging systems, and the image processing operations necessary to acquire and prepare an image.Written in a practical, accessible style, Fundamentals of Light Microscopy and Electronic Imaging reviews such topics as:Illuminators, filters, and isolation of specific wavelengthsPhase contrast and differential interference contrastProperties of polarized light and polarization microscopyFluorescence and confocal laser scanning microscopyDigital CCD microscopy and image processingEach chapter includes practical demonstrations and exercises along with a discussion of the relevant material. In addition, a thorough glossary assists with complex terminology and an appendix contains lists of materials, procedures for specimen preparation, and answers to questions.An essential resource for both, experienced and novice microscopists.
