Infinity-Corrected Optical Systems

Selected Literature References

Gathered from our vast library of literature on optical microscopy, the reference materials listed in this section are an excellent source of additional information on infinity-corrected optical systems. Included in this section are references to review articles, original research reports, and book chapters that discuss various aspects of the theory and applications regarding how microscopes are configured to take advantage of infinity optics.
