Light microscopy is the starting point in nearly all of our problem-solving situations, using one technique or a combination of techniques for small particle manipulation and identification wherein objects are viewed directly with controlled manipulation of light. Individual particles down to approximately 5 microns may be identifiable with limited information obtainable on much smaller particles. In those cases where other forms of instrumentation would prove necessary, light microscopy is used extensively for sample preparation for further examination. Photomicrographs may be taken on any of the various microscopes. Light microscopy techniques include: stereo, polarized, fluorescent, thermal, interference, and comparison.
