About This Webinar
Microscope objectives are critical for a vast range of biological imaging applications ranging from multiphoton microscopy to differential interference contrast microscopy. The high level of accuracy required for these systems leads to unique challenges in the design of microscope objectives appropriate for life science and biomedical research as opposed to other optical assemblies like factory automation lenses. Active alignment and other advanced assembly techniques are required to achieve the tight tolerances needed, and a focus on chromatic aberration correction results in high performance across the desired wavelength range.

Understanding the fundamentals of objective design will help you better select the right objective for your application and understand how to optimally balance objective specifications with the rest of the system requirements. This presentation helps users learn key principles of objective design.
