flat bed scanner for scanning holders and samples
« on: October 29, 2018, 07:47:07 am »
Hi All,

I just came across a very interesting article and thought I'd post it here:

http://www.microscopy-uk.org.uk/mag/artjan13/dw-scanner-type.html

A charge-coupled device (CCD) has a depth of field > 1cm, whilst a contact image sensor has a depth of field << 1cm

This explains why JEOL supply a CCD scanner together with plates so that the holder does not rest on the glass
