Microscopes are used to enlarge small particles that cannot be seen by bare eyes. They are mainly used in research and education and are categorised as optical and electron. An optical microscope uses light while an electron uses beams of highly energetic electrons.
Microscopes enable us to see those things that are normally not visible with the naked eye; such things include atoms, cells, molecules and many more. Microscopes are just tubes packed with lenses, curved pieces of glass that bend light rays passing through them. The simplest microscope of all is a magnifying glass made from a single convex lens, which typically magnifies by about 5-10 times.
