What is the 4x magnification lens called?

What is the 4x magnification lens called?

The 4X lens is called the scanning or low power lens. It has the widest field of view, allowing you to look at large parts of the specimen, and the greatest depth of field. The 10X lens is sometimes called medium power because it produces mid-range magnification.

Is 4x the smallest objective lens?

The 4x objective lens has the lowest power and, therefore the highest field of view.

What is the name given to the lenses 4x 10x 40x?

Objective Lenses: Usually you will find 3 or 4 objective lenses on a microscope. They almost always consist of 4x, 10x, 40x and 100x powers. When coupled with a 10x (most common) eyepiece lens, total magnification is 40x (4x times 10x), 100x , 400x and 1000x.

Which is the lowest magnification of objective lenses?

A scanning objective lens provides the lowest magnification power of all objective lenses. Combined with the magnification power of a 10x eyepiece lens, a 4x scanning objective lens gives a total magnification of 40x.

Which is the shortest lens in a microscope?

Scanning Objective(4X): This shortest objective is useful for getting an overview of the slide (especially handy with some of the slides that contain whole organs like a section of the spinal cord, lung, digestive tract, ovary, etc.). Low Power Objective(10X): This next shortest objective is probably the most useful lens for viewing slides.

Which is the shortest lens in an Abbe condenser?

An Abbe condenser is composed of two lenses that control the light that passes through the specimen before entering the objective lens on the microscope. The shortest lens is the lowest power, the longest one is the lens with the greatest power. Lenses are color coded and if built to DIN standards are interchangeable between microscopes.

Which is better low power or scanning objective lens?

The low power objective lens has more magnification power than the scanning objective lens, and it is one of the most helpful lenses when it comes to observing and analyzing glass slide samples.
