Digital Imaging in Optical Microscopy

For the past fifty years, the primary medium for photomicrography has been film, which has served the scientific community well by faithfully reproducing countless images from the optical microscope. It has only been in the past decade that improvements in electronic camera and computer technology have made digital imaging cheaper and easier to use than conventional photography. This section explores new concepts in digital imaging technology and reviews both fundamental concepts and advanced techniques involved in digital imaging. In addition several of the current camera systems designed for optical microscopy are explored.
