A new construction of a microscope condenser — supercondenser (3D) based on combined illumination has been offered. The condenser consists of three frontal lenses forming an aplanatic system with a numerical aperture of 1.25.
Supercondenser 3D possesses the following advantages:
It improves the resolving power of the microscope.
It eliminates optical distortions.
It forms a plastic image of a three-dimensional object.
It is simple in use and may be utilized with ordinary microscopes-both for dry or immersion objectives.
