Description:

This item is an interactive Java tutorial that simulates an industrial stereoscope with a zoom ratio of 15x. The stereoscopic microscope is designed with two separate optical paths and two eyepieces to produce a 3-D visualization. It is often used to study surfaces of solid materials or to conduct close work such as microsurgery or circuit board inspection. This simulation features diverse specimens including an integrated circuit, a tungsten filament, and a moth wing. It is part of a larger collection of virtual microscopy simulations developed for teachers and learners of introductory optics.
