This resource is an index of more than 15 interactive virtual microscopy techniques.   The user manipulates focus, intensity, magnification, and translation in a manner identical to real-life microscopy.  Techniques include SEM (scanning electron microscopy), translational, laser scanning confocal, phase contrast, integrated circuit inspection, polarized light, optical staining, and flourescence combination microscopies.  

This item is part of a larger collection of resources on optics and microscopy developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
