Microscopic imaging of a biological sample. A section of pine wood stem is imaged to show imaging performance of the scatter-plate microscope. (a) Conventional microscope image with monochromatic illumination and NA = 0.16. (b) Conventional microscope image with white light illumination and NA = 0.16. (c) Imaging performed using a scatter-plate microscope with NA = 0.16 and magnification 9X. The working distance in this case is 55 mm. Microscopic features of the tissue are resolved. Two microscopic structures of sizes 12 µm and 8 µm are encircled with dashed squares, and the cross-sectional plots are shown above in insets to verify the respective sizes. The scale bar is 20 µm.
