Optical microscopes use visible light and a system of lenses to magnify images of small samples. Basic optical microscopes can be very simple, although there are many complex designs which aim to improve resolution and sample contrast.
Which type of optical microscope?
A fluorescence microscope is an optical microscope that uses fluorescence and phosphorescence instead of, or in addition to, reflection and absorption to studysubstance properties.
The stereo or stereoscopic or dissecting microscope is an optical microscope designed for low magnification observation of a sample, typically using light reflected from the surface of an object rather than transmitted through it.
An inverted microscope is a microscope with its light source and condenser on the top, above the stage pointing down, while the objectives and turret are below the stage pointing up. These models are commonly used for micromanipulation or metallurgical applications
A digital microscope is a variation of a traditional optical microscope that uses optics and a digital camera to output the specimen image to a monitor.
Nanometrology is the science of measurement at the nanoscale level. In the field of microscopy, the two most common tools used are atomic force, and electron microscopy.
Are you looking for an atomic force microscope, or electron microscope?
Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is one of the most common nanometrology measurement techniques. It can be used to measure Topology, grain size, frictional characteristics, and different forces. AFM's have demonstrated resolution on the order of fractions of a nanometer, more than 1000 times better than optical microscopes.
An electron microscope is a microscope that uses a beam of accelerated electrons as a source of illumination. They are commonly used to investigate the ultrastructure of a wide range of biological and inorganic specimens including microorganisms, cells, large molecules, biopsy samples, metals, and crystals. Industrially, the electron microscope is often used for quality control and failure analysis.

Bruker Corporation LUMOS FTIR Microscope
LUMOS is a fully automated stand-alone FT-IR microscope. It combines best performance for visual inspection and infrared spectral analysis with highest comfort in use. The intuitive OPUS LUMOS software guides the operator through the process of microscopic sample analysis step-by-step. Due to the motorization and networking of all movable components in the LUMOS all required changes of hardware settings and the complete IR-measurement procedure are performed fully automated. The innovative motorized ATR-crystal allows the system to measure fully automated sample and background spectra even in ATR mode. The measurement results are stored in a single file including visible images, spectral data and sample information.
Evaluation and visualization of the microscopic data is performed in the powerful and intuitive OPUS Chemical Imaging software. Although the LUMOS is designed to be operated by non-experts for routine applications, its exceptional sensitivity makes it also very suitable for high demanding applications.
Bruker Corporation Alpha ll
The ALPHA II is a very compact FTIR spectrometer for quick, easy and reliable IR analysis. The design of its hard- and software are highly integrated for an intuitive and convenient operation.
All spectrometer components are built for continuous availability and a long life time. Bruker’s permanently aligned RockSolidTM interferometer and the reliable diode laser guarantee an accurate and precise data acquisition. Thanks to the CenterGlowTM IR source technology and a temperature controlled detector the ALPHA II provides a constantly high performance. The need for maintenance is minimized and running costs are kept very low as a result of long lasting relevant components like interferometer, IR source and laser. A wide range of QuickSnapTM sampling modules is available for the ALPHA II, providing a perfectly matching measurement setup for a large variety of samples and applications.
OPUS provides the right software user interface for the most efficient FTIR analysis. From measurement to evaluation to the final analysis report the user is guided through the analytical workflow in just a few steps. Therefore,the ALPHA II is easily operated even by spectroscopic inexperienced personnel. Powerful but easy to use functions for verifying and identifying IR spectra and performing quantitative analysis are included in the software.
The option to use the ALPHA II with the OPUS-TOUCH software on an integrated touch panel computer makes your daily routine analysis even simpler. Moreover, the footprint of the complete system is reduced to that of a laptop.
