Fundamental Limits in Confocal Microscopy
The previous chapter described how the confocal approach developed from conventional light microscopy and outlined the basic advantages gained by the use of confocal sampling techniques, primarilyExpand
Points, Pixels, and Gray Levels: Digitizing Image Data
Microscopical images are now almost always recorded digitally, and the flux of photons that forms the final image must be divided into small geometrical subunits called pixels, which will be stored as a single number. Expand
Confocal and two‐photon microscopy: Foundations, applications and advances
Description: Confocal and Two–Photon Microscopy Foundations, Applications, and Advances Edited by Alberto Diaspro Confocal and two–photon fluorescence microscopy has provided researchers with uniqueExpand

  • 1 October 1984
The advantages of low voltage operation, recent progress in instrumentation and a prototype instrument designed and built for optimum performance at 1 kV are described, which substantially removes the practical deterrents to operation in this mode. Expand

Wave of free calcium at fertilization in the sea urchin egg visualized with fura-2.
A wave front of increased free calcium traversing the egg at fertilization is demonstrated in the sea urchin Lytechinus pictus and two waves of Ca2+ originating from the respective points of sperm entry are recognized. Expand
Disk-Scanning Confocal Microscopy
Rapid biological imaging of faint fluorophores in living cells — especially in four dimensions [three dimensions + time] — imposes different instrumentation challenges from slowly acquiring a singleExpand
High-resolution scanning electron microscopy.
With state-of-the-art electron optics, resolutions of the order of 1 nm are now possible and progress beyond this level may be restricted by the delocalization of SE production and ultimate limits to electron-optical performance. Expand
