Saturday Morning Physics
Tricks with Light: How Microscopy Reveals the Biological World


Add to Cal
  • Host Department: Physics
  • Date: 11/01/2008
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  • Location: 170 & 182 Dennison Building

  • Description: From the first observation of cellular structures, light microscopy continues to shape our understanding of biology. This lecture will examine several important properties of how light interacts with matter, and explain how these interactions are exploited in the light microscope. Touching on several established microscopies, we'll also explore recent progress that is pushing the frontiers of spatial and chemical resolution, providing us with a richer view of the biological world.
