In this session, you will learn how laser scanning confocal microscopy is used in nanotechnology to image biological cells and tissue. Laser scanning confocal microscopy, often abbreviated confocal microscopy is a derivative of optical microscopy, the kind of microscope used in most biology labs. The difference is that confocal microscopes can scan at different depths and can create 3-D images. Many confocal microscopes use lasers for illumination which scan across a sample. Confocal microscopes produce high-resolution, high-contrast images for an optical microscope. You’ll see applications of confocal microscopes and the workshop will explain the theory of how these nanotechnology characterization instruments work.
