A condenser lens is the part of a compound microscope responsible for focusing light on the slide. This lens is included on almost all microscopes manufactured since the 19th century and is usually found on the bottom of...
A transmission electron microscope can reach magnifications of up to 500,000 times that of a human eye and a thousand times the magnification of a compound microscope. The transmission electron microscope does not use a ...
Sonar is used to detect objects and organisms in marine environments, such as submarines, ships and schools of fish. There are two types of sonar: active and passive.
