A. Background
Human on earth always want to know what is around him that
everything was created by God Almighty. Good things visible and invisible
by using only the naked eye. With the limitations of existing capabilities so
that people trying to find a tool that can be used to view these objects.
Microscope become a very important tool in the field of biological sciences
particularly in view when you want to observe substances / molecules are
small enough size that can not be seen by simply relying on normal
eyesight. Antonio van Leeuwenhoek (1674) is a person who managed to
find a microscope and develop the power of the lens so as to have a large
magnification. He then developed a microscope lens power to hundreds of
times. Leeuwenhoek had made more than 500 images microscope. In the
basic design of the microscope Leeuwenhoek, some people think it is just a
magnifying glass (because it is made of only one lens only), not a
microscope as it is used now (consisting of two lenses). Compared with
modern microscopes, homemade microscope is a very simple device, using
only one lens, mounted in a small hole in the brass plates that make up the
body of the instrument. The microscope is an instrument that is most widely
used in a laboratory activity. Because almost all the subjects of biology
requires a microscope in a laboratory activities.
Therefore, the microscope must be introduced early to a learner,
especially to students who entered the biology department. Microscope
study to determine the parts and their functions that laboratory operations
are no longer a student confusion when they wanted to use a microscope, as
well as how to care for the microscope.
B. Purpose
The purpose of this experiment is to skillfully use a biological
microscope with fast and safe to see a simple preparation.
C. Benefit

The students can also know the difference of cell form from some plant cells with microscope.1. and treat microscope. 2. CHAPTER II LITERATURE REVIEW . save. The students can know the parts of microscope and their function. the way to take.

and life in a drop of water (Hale. plants. A Dutchman. In 1674. 2007). According to Wiley (2008). it is the minimum distance . Developments in microscope technology have given scientists the ability to study cells in greater detail than early scientists ever thought possible. A microscope is a high precision optical instrument that uses a lens or a combination of lenses to produce highly magnified images of small specimens or objects especially when they are too small to be seen by the naked (unaided) eye. He worked as an apprentice in a dry goods store where magnifying lenses were used to count the threads in cloth. In 1609. Resolution is a measure ofthe clarity ofthe image. Over the years. This led to the first practical microscopes. Anton was the first to see and describe bacteria. Anton van Leeuwenhoek. Galileo (an Italian) improved on the principle of lenses and added a focusing device to improve somewhat upon what the Janssen’s had done. Hooke and van Leewenhoek would not have been able to see the individual structures within human skin cells with their microscopes. Anton was inspired by these glasses and he taught himself new methods for grinding and polishing small lenses which magnified up to 270x. an enormous range of light microscopy methods have been developed. yeast. or resolution. Light microscopy is one of the most common place and informative techniques used in the biological sciences. According to Hale (2007). According to Biggs (2008). Two important parameters in microscopy are magnification and resolving power. These rudimentary instruments didn’t change much until the early 1670s. particularly for imaging fluorescence as a means of determining the organization of tagged molecules inside a cell (Gross. The invention of the microscope is credited to Zaccharias Janssen (1587–1638) and his son Hans Janssen (1534-1592). A light source is used (either by mirrors or lamps) to make it easier to see the subject matter. two Dutch eye glass makers who placed multiple lenses in a tube and observed the image was magnified. 2009). is considered the father of microscopes because of the advances he made in microscope design and use. Magnification is the ratio of an object's image size to its real size.

For example. what appears to the unaided eye as one star in the sky may be resolved as twin stars with a telescope. many modifications have been made to the original electron microscopes.'o points. This type of electron microscope is called a transmission electron microscope (TEM) because electrons are passed. 2008: 184). Objects cause light to scatter. For example. when two lenses each individually magnify 10 times. thin. For example. they developed the electron microscope. or transmitted. The maximum magnification without blurring is around 1000x (Biggs.tv. sliced very thin. Scientists often stain cells with dyes to see them better when using a light microscope because cells are so tiny. the total magnification would be 100 times (10x 10). which blurs images. but the specimen must be dead. . most improvements in light microscopy in the last hundred years have involved new methods for enhancing contrast. forming a black-and white shaded image of the specimen. such as staining or labeling cell components to stand out visually (Campbel. Transmission electron microscopes can magnify up to 500. 2008: 95) The modern compound light microscope consists of a series of glass lenses and uses visible light to produce a magnified image. the scanning electron microscope (SEM) is one modification that directs electrons over the surface of the specimen. but the properties of visible light will always limit resolution with these microscopes. Thick parts of the specimen absorb more electrons than thin parts.'o points can be separated and still be distinguished as tv. which accentuates differences in parts of the sample. and translucent. scientists have developed various techniques and modifications for light microscopes. Each lens in the series magnifies the image of the previous lens. scientists needed greater magnification to see the details of tiny parts of the cell. Over the years. Instead of lenses. In fact. in the 1940s. Over the past 65 years. the electron microscope uses magnets to aim a beam of electrons at thin slices of cells. through a specimen to a fluorescent screen. and stained with heavy metals (Biggs. A third important parameter in microscopy is contrast. During the second World War. 2008: 184). As they began to study cells.000x.

Objective 4 times with eyepiece 10 times. magnification 400 times. in general as objective lens 1 time or 2 times with eyepice lens 10 times or 15 times (Lecturer team. 2008: 184). 2016: 1) . Objective 40 times with eyepiece 10 times. 3. magnification 1000 times. magnification 40 times. It has two objestive lenses and also two eyepice lenses.producing a three-dimensional image. Objective 100 times with eyepiece 10 times. Biology microscope is used to observe thin and transparent object. 2016: 1) Stereo microscope is used to observe the objects that are not too big. that are biology microscope and stereo microscope. Illumination can be set from the top or the bottom with nature’s rays or lamp. 4. transparent or not. Objective 10 times with eyepiece 10 times. The magnification power is not too strong. because of the use have to with emersi oils and the way to use it with specially way (Lecturer team. magnification 100 times. One disadvantage of using a TEM and an SEM is that only nonliving cells and tissues can be observed (Biggs. this biology microscope has eyepiece lens and objective lens with magnification power as follows: 1. so we can get three- dimension shadow with observe two eyes. The most powerful of objective in optical microscope 1000 times called emersi objective. In general. 2. Illumination is given from the bottom with the nature’s rays or lamp. Optical microscope consists of two.

Unlike TEM and SEM. the scanning tunneling electron microscope (STM). This instrument has enabled scientists to create three- dimensional computer images of objects as small as atoms. STM can be used with live specimens. magnified with a scanning tunneling electron microscope. involves bringing the charged tip of a probe extremely close to the specimen so that the electrons “tunnel” through the small gap between the specimen and the tip. The atomic force microscope (AFM) measures various forces between the tip of a probe and the cell surface (Biggs. 2008: 185). The cell’s genetic material. Another type of microscope. .
