Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Theoretical basis of fluorescence and confocal microscopy

technical description of equipment

practical microscopy of selected samples by fluorescence- and confocal microscopy (multichannel detection, serial optical sections through samples, image projections, generation of time series)

2 days of Image Processing: Deconvolution of acquired images; Introduction into Image J

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The aim of the course is to give theoretical and practical support to students, who are or will in the near future be involved with light microscopical experiments within their Master/PhD/post-doc studies. The small groups (2 people) will allow to advice students somehow personally for their planned experimental approaches.

Examination topics

microscopy sample preparation
widefield fluorescence microscopy (incl. Köhler and contrast enhancement)
measuring point spread function and chromatic aberration
confocal microscopy
image processing using "huygens" and ImageJ software
