Basics of Light Microscopy & Imaging
2nd Edition Now Online
Editorial of the second resided edition:
Five years after publishing the first edition, Olympus in collaboration with the GIT Verlag Wiley-VCH, now present the second,
revised edition of their special, "Basics of Light Microscopy & Imaging". The reason for the update is quite simple. We are out
of copies and it is still in high demand. In 2006, when we presented the special for the first time at the Microscience in London,
all the copies showcased at our booth were distributed to the attendees. With this second edition we want to reach all of
those who did not receive the original.
At this point, we'd like to thank everybody for the positive feedback and recommendations to others. A form of recognition
that we particularly appreciate is its use for educational purposes. A goal we in truth, intended to achieve. By special request
the compendium was translated into Cyrillic in 2009 and distributed by the Russian colleagues at Olympus. This extended its
circulation to a total of 22,000 recipients.
The present issue includes corrections in the original texts and changes to some of the illustration material. Otherwise, we
decided against any major changes of the content concept. To revise the structure and add new sections is another project
which we'd like to consider in the future.
Enjoy reading your copy.
