microscope parts

Question Answer
Eyepiece A 10x magnifying lenses you look through.
Body tube Connects the eyepiece to the revolving nosepiece.
Arm Supports the body tube.
Revolving nosepiece Holds and turns the objective into viewing position.
Objective lens Contains the lens for greater magnification.
Disc diaphragm Lets you regulate the amount of light that hits the stage.
Stage clips Hold the microscope slide in place.
Stage Supports the microscope slide.
Fine adjustment Sharpens the image under low and high magnification.
Coarse adjustment Focuses the image under low power.
Light source Provides light that passes upward through the disk diaphragm, the specimen, and the lenses.
Base Provides support for the microscope.
Compound Light Microscopes They use light to magnify objects. Magnifies up to 2000x. You use one eye to see, so you see in two dimensions. The object you look at must be thin enough for light to pass through.
Stereoscopic Microscopes They use light to magnify objects. Ours magnify up to about 50x. You use two eyes to see, so you see in three dimensions. The object you look at can be thick; light does not need to pass through it.
Electron Microscopes (TEM, Transmissional Electron Microscope) They use electrons to magnify. Magnifies up to 1,000,000x. Only makes 2d images. Object must be thin.
Electron Microscopes (SEM, Scanning Electron Microscope) They use electrons to magnify. Magnifies up to 200,000x. Makes 3d images. Object can be thick.
