Optical Microscopes - From the Very Basics to Cutting-Edge Bio-imaging

Associate Professor Katsumasa FUJITA[Division of Precision Science & Technology and Applied Physics, Graduate School of Engineering, Osaka University]

This lecture covers extensive subjects ranging from the principle of optical microscopes using various optical effects and basic knowledge on optics required for understanding this principle, to the cutting-edge research in the bio-imaging field and latest advances of optical microscopes.
”Good microscopic images” always refer to ”images that precisely reflect the conditions of specimen,” which is not merely being easy to observe.
Microscopic images to be obtained are affected by various factors, including the selected microscope and fine adjustments.
It is therefore necessary to skillfully respond to the types of microscopes and the properties of observed substances in order to obtain ”good microscopic images.” The key to success depends on correctly understanding the structure and mechanism of microscopes and make use of functions in every detail.
For the purpose of obtaining the optimum microscopic images, let’s take this course repeatedly to start with selecting a microscope suited for the purpose and substances to be observed.
