A microscope is a device that magnifies images of small objects, allowing the viewer to examine small structures up close and at a scale that is appropriate. Images can be magnified by a variety of waveforms other than light, such as acoustic waves, X-rays, or electron beams, and then received by direct or digital imaging, or a mix of these modalities. Microscopes can produce either dynamic or static images (like traditional optical equipment) (such as traditional scanning electron microscopes).
An optical microscope, in which an image is formed by a glass lens, is the most common type of microscope. The optical microscope can be relatively simple, consisting of only one lens, or it can be a composite consisting of several optical elements.
Other microscopes rely on the inconstancy of other physical processes. The most important is the electron microscope, which uses electron beams to form images. The transmission electron microscope (TEM) has a magnification of over 1000000 times. It creates a near-vacuum image of a thin sample. In contour specimens, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) produces embossed reflection pictures. Although the resolution is typically lower than that of a TEM, it is capable of displaying solid surfaces in a way that regular electron microscopes are unable to.
