Bernd Rieger and Sjoerd Stallinga make cartoon about microscopy

20 October 2016 by Communication TNW

In this funny animation, two researchers from the Imaging Physics department of the faculty of Applied Sciences take the audience through a short history of light microscopy.

The journey starts with the earliest days of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek in Delft, touches on the Nobel Prize for super resolution microscopy in 2014, and ends with the current efforts towards a resolution of one nanometre in a light microscope.

The animation shows students the nature of the work that is being done by the Quantitative Imaging Group. Moreover, it is a good way to get high school students interested in physics, especially physics in Delft.
