UV Microscope

The UV microscope is designed to image microscopic sample features by absorbance, reflectance, fluorescence and emission in the ultraviolet, visible and near infrared. While the usable spectral range of this microscope covers the UV, visible and near infrared regions, their optics and light sources are optimized so that they are more effective in the UV region. As such, there are many uses for UV microscopes as they can non-destructively image microscopic samples in regions other than the visible.
