Description:Caption:
This historic 1965 image depicted a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) transmission electron microscope (TEM), which uses a beam of electrons, that is passed through an extremely thin specimen, and on to an imaging surface, at which point the image becomes visible. Sometimes a fluorescent surface is used, and at other times a sheet of photographic film, or in the case of modern day technology, a digital camera captures the image. The electron microscope is capable of revealing details that are tens of thousands of times smaller than can be seen by even the highest quality light microscope.
