Structural analysis and measurements using optical microscopy image analysis for materials science using ISO 16232 standards has become increasingly critical across the materials sciences. Learn how current technologies, international standards, and specific equipment help generate supporting data for analysis and applications for optimal results. Pursue the highest quality end result.
In 1873, Ernst Abbe developed a theory that defined the limit of resolution of the light microscope. Following suit from astronomy, Abbe defined resolution as the ability to resolve, as separate, two point sources of light. The Abbe limit of 200–300 nm is based upon the ability of the light microscope to collect only a subset of spatial frequencies and the physiological properties of the human eye.
Basics of multiphoton microscopy.
The advent of multiphoton microscopy has enabled researchers to image deeper, with greater resolution and less background, leading to new scientific insights into topics ranging from stem cell biology to the cellular effects of human disease. In this webinar, you will learn about the latest approaches and applications of multiphoton imaging.
Live cell imaging has become a cornerstone of modern cell biology, as well as a technique routinely employed in other fields such as developmental biology, stem cell biology and neuroscience. In this webinar, you will learn about the effective use of live cell imaging for a growing number of applications.
Data will be presented demonstrating the capability of complementary technologies such as Confocal Microscopy and Interferometry for surface metrology including a brief overview of the Leica DCM 3D combined optical metrology system.
Chemical and electrical signals are well known to contribute to the growth and development of an organism; recently, there has been an emerging focus on another cue that can inform cellular development: physical force. Cells are pushed, pulled, and squeezed as they undergo biological processes such as cell division, migration, and morphogenetic events, and exciting recent work is identifying the role such forces play in governing cell function.
Imaging of thick specimen using multiphoton microscopy.
Multiphoton microscopy is the method of choice for non-invasive deep-penetration fluorescence microscopy of thick highly scattering samples. Good results have already been obtained with a diversity of specimen, e.g. lymphatic organs, kidney, heart, skin and brain (slices as well as whole organs, fixed specimen as well as living cells).
Are you interested in preparing vitreous thin-film samples from biological components, macromolecules, microtubules, cosmetics, polymers, paints, liposomes, for analysis in the cryo transmission electron microscope?
