Transmitted Light Microscopy
Transmitted light microscopy is a technique of light microscopy where the light passes from the source to the opposite side of specimens from the objective. This method is employed to distinguish the morphological characteristics and optic properties of the observed sample. Transmitted light microscopy generally has lower spatial resolution and less sensitivity than fluorescence microscopy.
Techniques the require transmitted light are bright-field, dark-field, phase contrast, polarization, and differential interference contrast (DIC) optics.
