Description:

This item is an interactive Java simulation relating to the inverted digital microscope. It takes the user on a virtual exploration of "off-axis" illumination, a feature that allows enhancement of contrast in specimens that would otherwise be nearly invisible. Users may choose from more than 15 specimens, including a canine hookworm, a dinosaur bone, and a sample of human kidney tissue. Each image initiates at brightfield and may be examined at varying degrees of oblique, finally reaching darkfield. 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.
