Micromirror TIRF Microscopy: Technique And Applications
Article | By Eric A. Drier, Mad City Labs, Inc.

Total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy is used to watch biological processes unfold in real time. Taking advantage of the ability to label individual molecules with different colors of fluorescent tags, TIRF microscopy lets scientists view the complex molecular assemblies that govern cellular processes.

Highest Quality Laser Interferometer Measurements Require Highest Quality Reference Optics
Article | Zygo Corporation

Fizeau interferometers are used to measure the shape and quality of optical surfaces with high precision by comparing the optic under test to a reference optic. However, it is important to remember that not all reference optics are created equal, as design and construction may cause quality fluctuation.
