microscopy

[mī′kräs·kə·pē]
(optics)
The interpretive application of microscope magnification to the study of materials that cannot be properly seen by the unaided eye.

microscopy

The use of microscopes to view ultra-small objects. Optical microscopes use a light source from below or to the side of the object being magnified. For example, in the medical field, there are numerous optical techniques, many of which require altering the samples being observed.

Scanning electron microscopes are able to magnify objects smaller than .2 micrometers, which is smaller than the wavelength of light. Scanning probe microscopes can image down to the molecular level (see AFM and STM).

Multiphoton microscopy also yields high-resolution images, but with even higher axial resolution, greater sample penetration, reduced photobleaching of marker dyes and increased cell viability.
Rubin notes that Thomas Bifano, at Boston University, has shown that combining multiphoton microscopy with AO can also make it easier to study the Brain [3].
Multiphoton microscopy (MPM) is a nonlinear, laser-based imaging technique that can generate high-resolution "histology-quality" images in real time without the need for any special tissue processing or exogenous dyes.
Simultaneous multiple-excitation multiphoton microscopy yields increased imaging sensitivity and specificity.
Analysis of 3D images has also become essential with the increasing use of confocal and multiphoton microscopy. Tile View, Slice View and Volume View have all been enhanced with extra features for improved viewing and manipulation.

In its report on the acquisition, the Federal Cartel noted Leica's concerns about a Zeiss monopoly on multiphoton microscopy. Carl Zeiss had no comment on the report and Bio-Rad could not be reached for comment.
These advances deliver improved reliability, lower operating costs, and simplified integration into optically complex applications such as multiphoton microscopy. The pump laser is a diode-pumped solid-state laser that uses only one pump diode.
These techniques include full-field optical coherence tomography, confocal fluorescence microscopy (CFM), and multiphoton microscopy. (8-12) These optical imaging modalities have been widely used for ex vivo imaging in research studies, but there is limited evidence regarding the feasibility of their use in routine surgical pathology practice.
