This item is an interactive Java simulation relating to digital imaging with optical microscopes.   The "sampling interval" is the spatial resolution of a digital image, as determined by the distance between pixels.  Analog signals must be digitized at an appropriate sampling frequency to produce acceptable image resolution.  This simulation allows users to explore how variations in the sampling frequency affect the final image.  See Related Materials on this page for a link to the full tutorial on digital image processing.

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

Please note that this resource requires Java.
