Concepts in Digital Imaging Technology

The Optical Microscopy Division of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) is part of a collaborative initiative among Florida State University, the University of Florida, and the Los Alamos National Laboratory. (See also see the August 4, 1999 Scout Report for Science & Engineering ) This section of their Molecular Expressions Photomicrography Primer provides an overview of several...
Exploratorium: Microscope Imaging Station

In the summer of 2004, the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco unveiled their very ambitious and interesting microscope facility. Over the past few years they've spent a considerable amount of time and money on this project, and they've also created this fine website to offer those far away from the Bay area some access to this project. First-time visitors will want to click on the "Features"...
Microscope Imaging Station

The Exploratorium in San Francisco continue to break new and intriguing ground with their latest online project, the Microscope Imaging Station. The actual physical Station resides at their museum, and was opened in 2004. Developed to complement this interactive exhibit, this online manifestation of the Station allows visitors to peer into the cells of living organisms such as sea urchins and...
Microscopy Society of America

The Microscopy Society of America (MSA) was created at a 1942 meeting in the Sherman Hotel in Chicago. During its first fifty years, the MSA was entirely devoted to the electron microscope. Today, the organization is broadly concerned with a wide range of microscopes, and its website is a great place to learn about this work. First-time visitors should look over the Latest News to get a sense of...
Molecular Expressions: Optical Microscopy Primer

Produced by the Florida State University, this website offers a host of tutorials about microscopy and its related principles. In the Physics of Light and Color link, students can learn about electromagnetic radiation, fluorescence, light filters, lasers, and much more. The website offers an introduction to the use of a microscope, animations of light pathways, and a history of the instrument's...
