    Researchers Develop Open Source Modular Microscope

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Researchers from the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT), Friedrich Schiller University, and Jena University Hospital developed a low-cost modular microscope that has the potential to greatly expand access to high-resolution microscopic imaging technology.

    The basic building block of the system, the UC2 (You See Too), is a 3D-printed cube with an edge length of 5 cm that can host a variety of components including lenses, LEDs, and cameras.
    The open-source 3D-printed cube can host self-designed inserts and electrical and optical components. The resulting modules can be combined to form complex optical instruments. Courtesy of UC2. The device’s modular nature enables adaptability to the needs of specific…
