    Practical Aspects: Köhler Illumination I, Köhler Illumination II, Essential Details.
    Image Formation: Optics, Image Formation, Limits to Resolution.


    • Explain the function of each part of the light microscope and show where it is located
    • Define "resolution", "contrast", and "definition" as they relate to the light microscope. Explain which parts of the microscope affect each. Manipulate these parts
    • The user will be able to summarize the optical path of light throughout the microscope from beginning to end
    • The user can determine the magnification, numerical aperture, and optimum cover-slip thickness of an objective lens
    • The user can perform each step in the process of Köhler illumination in order. They can also use the fine focus control to visualize the third dimension of a specimen
    • The user can recognize when an objective lens is dirty and can perform this simple maintenance procedure
    • The user can understand common lens aberrations as evidenced by choosing the best optics for a given application. The user will also be capable of critically evaluating manufacturer's specifications
    • The user will have a spatially accurate, 3-D understanding of the three properties of light and how they relate to the light microscope
