This classic has been throughly revised and expanded to reflect technological advances, but it still emphasizes the fundamentals, with extensive reviews of optical microscopy, video detectors, and display devices. Three completely new chapters deal with solid-state detectors, both video-rate and slow scan, image intensifiction; and the color video signal and color video cameras. Another new chapter treating the practical aspcts of the design and use of video microscope systems is especially notable. This edition fetures over 500 illustrations (including 126 half-tones), a glossary of items, detailed tables of specifications, and a list of manufacturers.
