View Resource Viewing Microstructures of Materials using the Optical Microscope

This lesson plan introduces students to microscopy using a light microscope. The unit will provide a background of light optical microscopy and the ways of manipulating the tool in order to optimize viewing of a sample. Students will gain a basic understanding of how the microscope works and learn to identify its components. A step by step module procedure is included. This document will serve...

View Resource Microscopy Primer

This site, sponsored by the Olympus company, provides a basic primer on microscopy. Sections of educational content include frequently asked questions, anatomy of the microscope, an interactive "virtual microscopy" tool, and a collection of links to web resources.

View Resource Basic Concepts and Formulas in Microscopy

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...

View Resource Microscope Simulation

Here you can read and find out about different kinds of microscopes - what you can see in them and how to prepare specimens for a particular microscope. You can also try the four different microscope simulators and watch and compare images taken with phase contrast microscopes, fluorescence microscopes, transmission electron microscopes and scanning tunneling microscopes. Test your knowledge of...

View Resource Scanning Tunneling Microscopy Activity

This resource provides an introductory activity on scanning tunneling microscopy. As the module states, "a scanning tunneling microscope is a powerful tool for observing and manipulating the atomic-scale world." The activity covers concepts such as the tunneling effect, scanning the surface, two modes of operation, and individual atom manipulation. This module allows students to test their...
