Description:

This item is a tutorial on the MIC-D digital microscope, an inverted-illumination system suitable for use in educational or research settings. An LED housed in a rotation arm can be manipulated to illuminate specimens from a variety of off-axis angles, enhancing contrast in specimens that would be nearly invisible in standard microscopy. The tutorial gives an anatomical overview and contains detailed explanations of brightfield, darkfield, oblique, and polarized illumination techniques. This item is part of a larger collection of materials on optics and microscopy developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and Florida State University.
