Product Description


"This should be provided to all beginning graduate students entering microscopy labs. It describes the complicated hardware of the system, while also explaining the physics principles of microscopy on a simplistic level for basic biologists. The authors achieve a perfect balance of theory and methods." ("Doody's", 15 November 2013)"It should be particularly useful to researchers getting started in the field of microscopy as well as seasoned professionals. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers/faculty, and professionals/practitioners." ("Choice", 1 October 2013)"In summary, Fundamentals of Light Microscopy, Second Edition is a recommended starting point for the novice in microscopy and electronic imaging." ("Journal of Biomedical Optics", 1 February 2013)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great text for student or researcher 7 Dec 2013
By Brian Matsumoto - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a comprehensive text of light microscopy and electronic imaging. It covers the traditional topics of brightfield, darkfield, DIC, and phase contrast but it also goes into confocal and ultra high resolution techniques. It is amply illustrated with colorful diagrams that elucidate the principles of optical microscopy.

Highly recommended.
1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality print and paper by amazon 28 July 2014

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Content is excellent but print of this version by Amazon is very poor and not worth the money. Buy the original version of this book somewhere else. I have a colleague who has this very same book and the quality is not comparable to this version here sold by Amazon.
