Required Reading for MicroscopyU website

Written by J. Wayne Jones

From: www.microscopyu.com


In the following list of topics from Nikon’s MicroscopyU site map, “X” indicates required reading for MSE 360 Lab I: Microscopy and Microstructure Analysis. In many of the sections you will find Java demonstrations of key principles of microscopy and digital image capture, as well as excellent explanations and illustrations. When you tire of reading, you may want to reward yourself by viewing the movies of crystals in Part IV. Popcorn is recommended anywhere except the Van Vlack Lab. I also encourage you to review the Nikon Small World Image Contest website (Part V). In Part VI you will find a handy indexing of the interactive tutorials embedded in many of the sections. You should be able to link directly to the sites from the list using the Microsoft Word document, or you should go directly to the website and use the list below as a guide.

Nikon MicroscopyU Site Map

The MicroscopyU site map is designed to enhance navigation through the website using a hierarchy of folders and direct links to articles and tutorials of interest. In order to explore the site map, use the mouse cursor to expand folders having a plus (+) sign on the directory tree. Blue text indicates a link, while black text is reserved for directory titles (without a link). Folders can be collapsed by clicking on the minus (-) sign on the directory tree adjacent to the folder name
