View Expansion System for Microscope Photography


In this study, we have proposed a view expansion system for photomicroscopy using the observing point movement of a Galvano mirror. We have developed a prototype of the proposed view expansion system that consists of a microscope, Galvano mirror, and vision system. Then, the visual field of the developed microscopic view expansion system has been derived experimentally. We are also conducting to apply the proposed system to observation of micro objects such as cell observation.
