Interactive Java Tutorials

Section Overview:

Olympus interactive Java tutorials are designed to simplify and explain complex topics in microscopy, optics, digital imaging, and photomicrography. Each tutorial explores an individual topic and takes advantage of powerful Java technology to create interactive features that allow the visitor to change parameters and observe how this affects the phenomenon being studied. Use the links below to navigate to interactive Java tutorials of interest.

  • Anatomy of the Microscope

    Explore the basics of microscope configuration and operation with these interactive tutorials. Topics range from elementary aspects of magnification and illumination to specialized objectives, and condensers.

  • The Physics of Light and Color

    Examine properties of light such as reflection, diffraction, refraction, polarization, and interference in this section. Basic aspects of ray tracing through lenses and various aspects of color are covered too.

  • Specialized Microscopy Techniques

    Interactive Java tutorials in this section are intended to allow visitors and students to examine complex topics involved with these specialized techniques and to master the intricate details of advanced optical microscopy.

  • Photomicrography

    Interactive Java tutorials on both photomicrography and digital imaging are included in this section, as well as tutorials on the fundamentals of CCD operation, color temperature, and filters for microscopy.

  • Virtual Microscopy

    Discover how advanced optical microscopy techniques are employed to produce images of specimens. Among the microscopy techniques simulated are polarized light, phase contrast, differential interference contrast, and more.

  • Confocal Microscopy

    Explanations for many complex concepts in laser scanning confocal microscopy can significantly benefit from the assistance of interactive tutorials that enable the student to obtain instantaneous response to changes in variables.

  • Digital Image Processing

    Explore how the fundamental tools of digital image processing can be utilized to manipulate, rehabilitate, edit, resize, rotate, and store images captured with an optical microscope (or other digital image recording device).
