Opt 307/507 Spring '04

Colorized SEM Micrograph of Pollen



Opt 307/507 Practical Scanning Electron Microscopy and Advanced Topics

Concept: This course serves as a portal to the micro and nano world visible with the aid of high resolution microscopies. From fundemental technologies right up through practical hands-on operation of the lab equipment the students get what they need to both understand AND DO microscopy.
