Summary

Introduction to geometrical and wave optics for understanding the functioning of optical microscopes and their advantages and limitations. How to choose the type of microscope and the imaging method that are best suited for investigating the biological sample of interest?

Content

Geometrical and matrix (ABCD) optics, wave and Fourier optics, point-spread function (PSF), resolution and contrast, microscope elements (objectivs, eyepiece, filters, illuminations, detectors), confocal microscopy, fluorescence.

Keywords

Optical microscopy, fluorescence, wide field microscopy, confocal microscopy.

Learning Prerequisites
