Laser scanning confocal microscopes are essential and ubiquitous tools for biological and biomedical sciences. However, modern laser scanning confocal microscopes have a number of advantages for the study of materials as well. Materials applications include high resolution reflected and transmitted light microscopy as well as photo-stimulated luminescence, pseudo-infinite depth of field imaging and spectral deconvolution. I will discuss these capabilities that make the laser scanning confocal microscope a versatile addition to the materials science toolkit.
Refreshments will be served.
