Compact Deep UV Microscope

  • Spatial resolution
  • High contrast imaging
  • Microscopy in the deep ultraviolet


Our invention describes the design, construction and operation of compact instruments that haveenabled us to record deep ultraviolet microscopic images, utilizing relatively widely available and inexpensive components such as fused silica ball lenses and modified webcams or monochrome CCD camera sensors.


  • High spatial resolution
  • High contrast imaging of biological samples

Potential Applications

  • Biological research
  • Protein crystallization studies and hematology studies
  • Quantitative measurements of biomolecule concentrations in sample
  • Semiconductor manufacturing and process analysis
