A compound microscope uses a lens close to the object being viewed to collect light (called the objective lens) which focuses a real image of the object inside the microscope (image 1). That image is then magnified by a second lens or group of lenses (called the eyepiece) that gives ...

Compound Light Microscope: The microscope pictured above is referred to as a compound light microscope. The term light refers to the method by which light transmits the image to your eye. Compound deals with the microscope having more than one lens. Microscope is the combination of two words; "micro" meaning ...

A compound light microscope is limited to about 2000X magnification. Beyond that limit you could indeed magnify it, but neither your eyes nor your brain would be able to recognize the image. With a limit of around 2000X magnification you can view bacteria, algae, protozoa and a variety of human/animal cells. Viruses ...

Illuminator is the light source for a microscope, typically located in the base of the microscope. Most light microscopes use low voltage, halogen bulbs with continuous variable lighting control located within the base. Condenser is used to collect and focus the light from the illuminator on to the specimen. It is located under the ...

The total magnification is calculated by multiplying the magnification of the ocular lens by the magnification of the objective lens. Light is passed through the sample (called transmitted light illumination). Larger objects need to be sliced to allow this to happen efficiently. Compound microscopes usually include exchangeable ...

The typical compound light microscope (Fig.1) is capable of increasing our ability to see detail by 1000 times so that objects as small as 0.1 micrometer (um) or 100 nanometers (nm) can be seen. Electron microscopes extend this range further allowing us to see objects as small as 0.5 nm in diameter or roughly 1/200,000th  ...

Light microscopes can come in several forms. Simple light microscopes use a single lens to magnify an object and cannot reach high magnification. Compound light microscopes use two sets of lenses - an objective lens and an eyepiece - to produce images. Monocular microscopes have one eyepiece, while binocular ...
