What is a Monocular Microscope?
Monocular microscopes are a type of compound light microscope. All compound light microscopes have at least two convex lenses, which enable specimen study to be conducted in a two dimensional view. The monocular microscopes only have one eye piece, which makes them unique in appearance as well as function from other traditional microscopes. The specimen is illuminated via transmission from the light source or commonly referred to transmitted light. A typical light source in a monocular microscope ranges from halogen, tungsten, LED illumination, or by using ambient light accompanied with a mirror and fork. The mirror and fork are implemented to collect the light for specimen viewing. Read More(+)
