In the diagrams of microscope above, the important of parts of a microscope are explained. A microscope is an instrument widely to magnify and resolve the image of an object that is hard to see with naked eyes. This tool is commonly used in a microbiological laboratory and is uses for the study of organisms. There are many kinds of microscopes, according to its functions. It basically can be separated into several different classes. One grouping is based on what interacts with the sample to generate the image, i.e., light or photons (optical microscopes), electrons (electron microscopes) or a probe (scanning probe microscopes). In these microscope diagrams, there are a several kinds of microscope such as compound and light microscope.
The compound microscope uses lenses and light to enlarge the image and is also called an optical or light microscope (vs./ an electron microscope). The simplest optical microscope is the magnifying glass and is good to about ten times (10X) magnification. The compound microscope has two systems of lenses for greater magnification, 1) the ocular, or eyepiece lens that one looks into and 2) the objective lens, or the lens closest to the object.
The various parts of a microscope with their associated function are mentioned above. Get this diagram by clicking on the image. Learn more about the other educational diagrams by browsing through our categories or looking it up on the search column!
