Users in microelectronics quality control seek to identify deviations from the standard and improve the production processes so that defects are minimized or even eliminated. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/galleries/image-gallery-digital-microscopy-used-in-microelectronics-and-electronics-quality-control/ Thu, 19 May 2016 11:23:00 +0000 PhD James DeRose, Claudia Müller https://www.leica-microsystems.com/17472 Camera Technology Basics in Microscopy Widefield Microscopy Image Restoration and Deconvolution Definitions of Basic Technical Terms for Digital Microscope Cameras and Image Analysis Most microscopes today are operated with a camera. The characteristics of the camera often decide whether the acquired image will reveal what a researcher wants to see. But when diving into camera terminology, the technical terms can be overwhelming. We have compiled the most important terms with a concise explanation to provide orientation. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/definitions-of-basic-technical-terms-for-digital-microscope-cameras-and-image-analysis/ Tue, 19 Apr 2016 11:39:00 +0000 Claudia Müller, Dr. Christoph Greb, Dr. Karin Schwab https://www.leica-microsystems.com/17931 Camera Technology 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/17468 Camera Technology Basics in Microscopy Widefield Microscopy Introduction to Digital Camera Technology A significant majority of modern optical microscopy techniques require the use of a digital camera. By working with digital devices researchers can observe specimens on a screen in real time or acquire and store images and quantifiable data. Here we introduce the basic principles behind digital camera technologies commonly encountered in scientific imaging. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/introduction-to-digital-camera-technology/ Tue, 02 Feb 2016 16:40:00 +0000 Dr. Christoph Greb, Dr. Peter Laskey, Dr. Karin Schwab https://www.leica-microsystems.com/15057 Super-Resolution Camera Technology Live-Cell Imaging Towards Digital Photon Counting Cameras for Single-molecule Optical Nanoscopy A SPAD array camera with single-photon sensitivity and zero read-out noise allows for the detection of extremely weak signals at ultra-fast imaging speeds. With temporal resolution in the order of micro-seconds, a SPAD array camera offers great potential for live-cell imaging with super-resolution. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/towards-digital-photon-counting-cameras-for-single-molecule-optical-nanoscopy/ Wed, 04 Mar 2015 08:06:00 +0000 https://www.leica-microsystems.com/2558 Camera Technology Stereo Microscopy Basics in Microscopy Widefield Microscopy Digital Cameras Manufacturers digital cameras race to outdo each other with ever-increasing numbers of megapixels. The world record for professional medium format digital cameras has now surpassed 60 megapixels per shot using a very large and expensive sensor with a resolution of about 9000 x 6700 pixels. Each time you capture such an image you get about 180 MB of uncompressed data and even more if you switch to 16-bit per colour for full dynamic range. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/digital-cameras/ Thu, 30 Apr 2009 22:00:00 +0000 Urs Schmid
