Various types of mirror lenses were developed some decades ago designed for several special tasks in microscopy. When compared with high-end glass lenses, mirror lenses lead to an extraordinary image quality because of their supraapochromatic color fidelity and their high planarity; the working distances are significantly longer, and in most cases, the… CONTINUE READING
