With a number of workstations available, you will have an opportunity to explore
various methods of digital imaging.
Camera technology – introductory guide to choosing a camera to acquire images from
a microscope, from consumer cameras to super-sensitive EMCCD cameras. What camera
features should you look for? How can you match the resolution of the camera to the
resolution of the microscope?
ImageJ introduction/workshop – lots of people use this for image processing and analysis
(it’s free to download), it’s a good place for a novice to start.
Extended image acquisition and analysis – a round-up of more advanced techniques,
just to explain what they are and why they are useful e.g.
Tile imaging of large areas
Extended depth of field
Topography (surface roughness)
An RMS specialist will be on hand to give assistance and there will be a talk on
the opportunities of digital microscopy each day.
