- It follows that any chromatic or
**spherical aberration**will seriously affect performance. - Fluorescence microscopy
- Introduction
- Spherical aberration is an inherent property of a simple lens – the lens is more powerful at the edge that in the centre, so the image will not be sharp.
- Light microscopy
- The problem with the simple arrangement is that the distance between objective and eyepiece must be absolutely fixed, since
**spherical aberration**can only be corrected for one position of the image. - Scanning and resolution
