Light and Video Microscopy

The purpose of this book is to provide the most comprehensive, easy-to-use, and informative guide on light microscopy. Light and Video Microscopy will prepare the reader for the accurate interpretation of an image and understanding of the living cell. With the presentation of geometrical optics, it will assist the reader in understanding image formation and light movement within the microscope. It also provides an explanation of the basic modes of light microscopy and the components of modern electronic imaging systems and guides the reader in determining the physicochemical information of living and developing cells, which influence interpretation.

cell biologists, neurobiologists, reproductive biologists, plant biologists, microbiologists, fungal biologists, veterinarians, forensic scientists, food scientists, horticulturalists, biochemists, physicists, engineers, and anyone using a light or video microscope
