Introduction to the microscope carepartsfocusing slide2 types of microscopes light microscope - the models found in most schools, use compound lenses to magnify objects the lenses bend or refract light to make the object beneath them appear closer common magnifications: 40x, 100x, 400x.
Introduction to light microscopy introduction light microscopes are important instruments not only for cell biologists but also for scientists in many other disciplines as well modern research requires the use of microscopes to observe contrast microscope was the first contrast generating system readily available for the study of. Introduction to stereomicroscopy the first stereoscopic-style microscope having twin eyepieces and matching objectives was designed and built by cherubin d'orleans in 1671, but the instrument was actually a pseudostereoscopic system that achieved image erection only by the application of supplemental lenses. Light microscopy refers to the use of any kind of microscope that use visible light to observe specimens the light microscope, so called because it employs visible light to detect small objects, is probably the most well-known and well-used research tool in biology.

Electron microscope versus light microscope the usual type of microscope you might find in a classroom or science lab is an optical microscope an optical microscope uses light to magnify an image up to 2000x (usually much less) and has a resolution of about 200 nanometers. A microscope (from the ancient greek: μικρός, mikrós, small and σκοπεῖν, skopeîn, to look or see) is an instrument used to see objects that are too small to be seen by the naked eye microscopy is the science of investigating small objects and structures using such an instrument microscopic means invisible to the eye unless aided by a microscope. Introduction to the compound microscope page 4 correction the total magnification of the microscope is equal to the magnification of the ocular multiplied by the magnification of the objective if you are using the 4x objective and the 10x ocular the total magnification would be 4 x 10 = 40x.
