NAME

Microscopy

DESCRIPTION

Microscopy refers to any method used to acquire images of nearby objects at resolutions that greatly exceed the resolving ability of the unaided human eye. Object visualization may be mediated by light or electron beams using optical or magnetic lenses respectively, or through the use of a physical scanning probe that measures one of a wide range of different sample characteristics.

126 skos:definition Confocal microscopy is an optical imaging technique that scans a focused point of light around a sample to reconstruct an image in a point-by-point manner. A pinhole is used in the detection path to reject out-of-focus light and increase resolution and contrast compared to wide field illumination. The technique is particularly useful for three-dimensional imaging.
