A field-of-view scanner is an assembly of galvanometric scanning mirrors used in single-point confocal microscopes that offer the correct optical recording of large field sizes. The field-of-view scanner employs a three-mirror concept that offers superior homogeneity in illumination compared to classical two-mirror scanners, without compromising high scanning speed. The galvanometric scanners are controllable in speed and position, allowing zoom and pan functions as well as tuning the scan frequency. They also allow resting point illumination as is required for, e.g., FCS-measurements. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/what-is-a-field-of-view-scanner/ Wed, 06 Mar 2019 23:00:00 +0000 Dr. Rolf T. Borlinghaus https://www.leica-microsystems.com/24713 Confocal Microscopy Resolved Field Number (RFN) The field number (FN) for optical microscopes indicates the field of view (FOV). It corresponds to the area in the intermediate image that is observable through the eyepieces. Although, we cannot observe very large fields at once, the human eye can scan and integrate structural features over the full field. Furthermore, it is essential, that field size and resolution fit to the capabilities of the human eye. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/resolved-field-number-rfn/ Wed, 06 Mar 2019 23:00:00 +0000 Dr. Rolf T. Borlinghaus https://www.leica-microsystems.com/17931 Live-Cell Imaging What Makes sCMOS Microscope Cameras so Popular? sCMOS cameras are more sensitive and are capable of much higher acquisition speed than cameras with other sensor types. Even though CCD cameras are widely used in live cell imaging and time-lapse recordings, researchers are often concerned that their camera does not detect faint signals. In this interview, Dr. Karin Schwab, Product Manager at Leica Microsystems, talks about the characteristics of sCMOS cameras and how researchers benefit from the latest camera sensor technology. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/what-makes-scmos-microscope-cameras-so-popular/ Mon, 11 Apr 2016 10:22:00 +0000 Claudia Müller, Dr. Karin Schwab https://www.leica-microsystems.com/11767 Digital Microscopy Using Telecentric Optical Systems to Optimize Industrial Image Accuracy and Reproducibility When the first multi-lens microscopes were invented in 1590, scientists marveled at their new ability to SEE small objects and features in the natural world that were previously invisible to the eye and therefore seemingly nonexistent. With the constant miniaturization of parts and products in automated manufacturing over the past 5 decades, the use of microscopes has spread increasingly from science to industry. Today microscopes are found in a multitude of assembly and inspection applications wherever visualization and measurement of miniscule features are required. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/using-telecentric-optical-systems-to-optimize-industrial-image-accuracy-and-reproducibility/ Thu, 25 Jun 2015 18:57:00 +0000 Clinton Smith
