Microscopy is the technical field of using microscopes to view samples or objects. There are three major branches of microscopy: optical, electron and scanning probe microscopy. Optical and electron microscopy involve the diffraction, reflection, or refraction of electromagnetic radiation interacting with the subject of study, and the subsequent collection of this scattered radiation in order to build up an image. Scanning probe microscopy involves the interaction of a scanning probe with the surface or object of interest. The links shown on this page feature the key word ′Microscopy’ in their stories:
