Basic Microscopy Concepts

The site provides introductory information related to optical microscopy. Among the topics addressed are resolution, numerical aperture, depth of field, field of view, illumination and the useful magnification range. A section on fluorescence microscopy is also included. Interactive video is used to demonstrate concepts in some cases. Researchers and educators interested in a brief overview of…

Fluorescence Applications in Microscopy

The site contains a set of experimental and teaching modules that cover the fundamentals, history and practice of microscopy. Modules on microscopy, FRET, FRAP and Quantitative Multidimensional Microscopy will be of interest to chemists and biologists. Several include great graphics that would be helpful additions for instrumental analysis lectures. The website is available here .
