Lenses and Image Formation: Dan Fletcher Light microscopes use lenses. The basic properties of light, how light interacts with matter, the principles behind refractive lenses and how lenses form (magnified) images will be introduced in this talk.
Early History of Microscopy: Joseph Gall Joseph Gall takes us through the history of early microscopes and the discovery of the cell. Compound microscopes were invented alongside the telescope in the 17th century.
Resolution in Microscopy: Jeff Lichtman This lecture describes the diffraction of light, a key principle in image formation and a factor that limits the resolution of a conventional light microscope.
Polarization Microscopy: Edward Salmon Polarization microscopy probes the interaction of molecules with polarized light and is particularly good for examining well-order structures composed of polymers, such as the mitotic spindle.
Choosing the Right Microscopy Technique: Ron Vale This concluding lecture summarizes the main techniques covered in the short course and provides an overview of when a specific microscopy method might be advantageous for a particular sample or biological experiment.
