Phase-contrast microscopy is an optical-microscopy technique that converts
phase shifts in light passing through a transparent specimen to brightness
Phase contrast microscopy, first described in 1934 by Dutch physicist Frits
Zernike, is a contrast-enhancing optical technique that can be utilized to produce
In a light microscope in bright field mode, light from highly refractive structures
bends farther ... Phase contrast is preferable to bright field microscopy when high
