Microscope objectives are used ubiquitously for a multitude of imaging applications. However, their design and manufacturing is a subject known only to insiders. In this webinar presented by the Imaging Optical Design Technical Group, Dr. Benjamin Deissler from Leica Microsystems CMS GmbH will give you an overview of the design considerations and production processes involved in manufacturing commercial high-performance microscope objectives.

This hour-long webinar will include topics such as balancing different performance parameters and manufacturability considerations in optical design, as well as manufacturing and testing methods used to provide sustainable quality to the customer.

What You Will Learn:

  • An overview of the design and manufacturing process of modern microscope objectives.

Who Should Attend:

  • Researchers and users of microscopic imaging methods.
