Optical microscopy is a technique used to view a sample closely with visible light through the magnification of a lens. This traditional form of microscopy was first invented before the 18th century and in use till today. Optical microscopy is commonly employed in many fields of research including biotechnology, pharmacology, nanophysics, microelectronics, and microbiological research. It can also be useful in histopathology, to view medical diagnoses and biological samples.
