We will navigate the difference between optical and digital magnification, explain the differences in optics, and cover what these differences mean for users. We will also explain the importance of illumination and how users might be missing critical features on their samples. The presentation also includes how users may benefit from encoding, the accuracy of their data, and what to look for when deciding on the right digital microscope. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/industrial-microscopy-digital-imaging-and-the-leica-dvm6/ Fri, 31 Jul 2020 13:26:00 +0000 Nicholas Baker https://www.leica-microsystems.com/25048 Education Widefield Microscopy Digital Microscopy Digital Classroom Options As teachers, you know your big challenge is to catch and keep the students’ attention and the best chance for this is by making the environment interactive.

This means that thicker and bigger geological samples have to be sectioned and polished to fit under the limited working distance of a compound microscope. The Leica DVM 6 provides outstanding image quality, extra working distance and allows geologists to work with polished and unpolished samples (micro mounts, fossils, drilled cores …), make 3D reconstructions of their surfaces and enables classical petrographic work as well. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/digital-microscopy-in-earth-science/ Wed, 30 Aug 2017 11:51:00 +0000 MSc Michael Doppler https://www.leica-microsystems.com/19440 Digital Microscopy Quality with Confidence From routine quality assurance to advanced 3D analysis of complex surface structures, there is a digital microscope solution to meet almost any request https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/quality-with-confidence/ Tue, 09 May 2017 07:50:00 +0000 Clinton Smith, Mario J.

Recently, state-of-the-art improvements have made digital microscopy even more powerful and practical for inspection, leading to a more efficient workflow. Here, the advantages of certain digital microscope features, i.e., intuitive software for operation and analysis, fast and easy ways to change magnification, and encoding for reliable recall of parameters, are explained. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/inspecting-and-analyzing-printed-circuit-boards-quickly-and-reliably-with-a-digital-microscope/ Mon, 11 Jan 2016 09:09:00 +0000 PhD James DeRose, Georg Schlaffer https://www.leica-microsystems.com/16798 Basics in Microscopy Stereo Microscopy Widefield Microscopy Color Infidelity: Why Using a Light Source Incorrectly is Cheating on your Data There are many influences on color in the imaging process including lighting, optics, sensor, and monitor, and ultimately print. The first, and generally most important, is lighting. There are plenty of options for light sources, Halogen, LED, and arc lamps are among the most popular for microscopes. Each light source has its own advantages and disadvantages and it is up to the user to learn which is best for the sample and application. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/color-infidelity-why-using-a-light-source-incorrectly-is-cheating-on-your-data/ Thu, 19 Nov 2015 16:28:00 +0000 Mike Tjepkema https://www.leica-microsystems.com/15767 Digital Microscopy Quality Assurance What You Always Wanted to Know About Digital Microscopy, but Never Got Around to Asking Digital microscopy is one of the buzz words in microscopy – and there are a couple of facts that are useful to know.

Anja Schué https://www.leica-microsystems.com/6596 Digital Microscopy Quality Assurance 3D Visualization of Surface Structures One of the main features of a digital microscope is the speed and ease with which it enables surface models to be created of macroscopic and microscopic structures. In a qualitative evaluation, these provide a better understanding and a more detailed documentation of the specimen. In addition, quantification of the surface provides valuable information about the composition of the surface and its wear. Which specimens are suitable for use with a Leica digital microscope, and what are the limitations of the method used? https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/3d-visualization-of-surface-structures/ Wed, 19 Sep 2012 22:00:00 +0000 Daniel Goeggel, Georg Schlaffer https://www.leica-microsystems.com/5118 Forensics Digital Microscopy Collecting "Funny Money" Nobody wants counterfeit money in their wallet. Even counterfeiters want to get rid of their own creations as quickly as possible. However, experts work intensively to identify counterfeit money on behalf of the law. Martin Weber of the National Analysis Center of the German Bundesbank (Federal Bank) in Mainz is such an expert on forged banknotes. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/collecting-funny-money/ Thu, 11 Aug 2011 22:00:00 +0000 Dipl. oec.-troph.

Scientists of the Copenhagen Polychromy Network (CPN) help to show that the statues of the Greeks and Romans were decorated with extravagant ornaments and sumptuous colours. With the help of a surgical microscope and digital microscopy, the conservators detect tiny traces of paint pigment that suggest a veritable feast of colour in ancient times. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/ancient-feast-of-color/ Mon, 14 Dec 2009 23:00:00 +0000 Jan Stubbe Ostergaard
