Abstract

Summary

This paper provides an analysis of the functions of the optical components of the light microscope. Its novelty consists of a ray diagram in which the object is symmetrically related, either at a mirror plane or a centre of symmetry, to the optical components of the illuminating and imaging systems on either side of it.
