The Peak TS2001015 Pocket Non Measuring Microscope has a monocular eyepiece for 15x magnification and a 5.4mm (0.213") field of view with a glass lens that provides distortion-free magnification and color correction. It is 12.7mm (0.5") in diameter and 127mm (5") in length, has a clip for attaching to a pocket, and comes with a carrying case. A pocket pen-type microscope is used for specimen examination in classroom, field, and manufacturing settings.
Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. Types include compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying magnification abilities. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also utilize LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.
