Question and answer
Compare and contrast the structure and function of a compound light microscope and a scanning electron microscope. Be sure to discuss the structure and function of each as well as the function and
usefulness of each when examining a specimen
Compound light microscope: Light illuminated. Two dimensional images. This microscope is the most commonly used. You can view individual cells, even living ones. High magnification, but a low resolution. [ Specimens are placed on glass slides and are seen through light absorption. Transmission electron microscope: Electron illuminated. Has a 2-D view. Thin slices of specimen are obtained. The
electron beams pass through it and seen by means of electron scattering. It has high magnification and high resolution. Specimens are mounted on thin films of collodion or other supporting material on copper grids. Source: ]
