This item is an interactive Java simulation relating to digital imaging with optical microscopes.  The simulation consists of a schematic microscope diagram.  As the user controls a slider, the angle of illumination can be translated left to right, allowing students to see the advantage of oblique illumination for enhancing resolution of specimens that would otherwise be difficult to see.  

This item is part of a larger collection of materials on introductory optics developed by Florida State University and The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.  See Related Materials on this page for a full tutorial on oblique and anaxial illumination.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
