Light microscopy two-day crash course
16th-17th of January 2017 !!! Note new dates!!!
The course is now full. Registration is now on waiting list.
This condensed course is aimed at everybody, who wants to understand the basic principles of optics and fluorescence in microscopy. Theoretical lectures are followed by practicals. The course will cover:
Basic Principles of microscopy
- Optics of the microscope
- Diffraction, Resolution and Contrast
Fluorescence and Confocal Microscopy
- Fluorescence microscopy (fluorophores, illumination…)
- Basic Confocal microscopy (lasers, multi-dimensional image acquisition, live imaging …)
Next course: 16th-17th of January 2017 !!! Note new dates!!!
Minimum / Maximum number of participants: 12 / 18
Register on the waiting list here.
The course will be confirmed two-weeks before it should take place, and free cancellation is only allowed until the 31st of December.
