Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to operate in the microscopical  everyday life a brightfield-, darkfield-, UV-, phase-contrast-, polarizing-, interference-contrast- or fluorescence microscope as a result of the basic knowledge teached and the possibility of a practical training.

Subject of course

Theory of light microscopy:
Basics of geometrical and wave optics; resolution.
Practical microscopy: Transmitted/reflected light microscopy; lateral measurements and counting methods; darkfield-, UV- and phase contrast microscopy; polarisation-, interference-, fluorescence microscopy; sample preparation; histochemistry.

Image analysis and processing:
The students may work with new image analysis systems in module construction (SIS Analysis; ZEN); Extended Focal Imaging; Multiple Image Alignment; 3D-images;  measurement of object structures; detection of particles; archiving pictures.
Picture optmization by means of modern software (Adobe Photoshop, Irfan View, Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8).
