Field of View: When people talk about “Magnification” 400x or 200x, they often really mean the size of the fiber area compared to the entire viewing zone. Going to high power on a microscope decreases the area of the field of view. 0000030409 00000 n

Field of View or Field Diameter is very important in microscopy as it is a more meaningful number than "magnification". You will need to know the field number of the eyepieces being used, the objective value, and any auxilary objective values. The microscope field of view, or field diameter, is the distance across the image as seen through the microscope.The field of view is greater at lower magnifications. 0000042054 00000 n

Field diameter is simply the number of millimeters or micrometers you will see in your whole field of view when looking into the eyepiece lens. 0000053621 00000 n
Î In a microscope, the field of view (FOV) is the diameter of the circle of light that you see when looking through a microscope FOV = diameter of circle of light Î As the magnification power gets greater, the FOV gets smaller 40X 100X 400X Î We can measure the FOV of our microscope using a transparent ruler. 0000055342 00000 n
Microscope information, images from beneath the microscope and educational science projects. For example, at 10x magnification 20mm might fill your field of view, whereas at 40x magnification you might only see 5mm. 0000042522 00000 n
