  • Patent number: 12038570
    Abstract: A microscope includes: an optical system including an immersion objective for an immersion medium of a predetermined refractive index; an aperture stop; and a processor for setting an immersion-free imaging mode in which the optical system is operated without immersion medium. The processor controls the aperture stop in the immersion-free imaging mode to set a numerical aperture of the immersion objective to a reduced value which is lower than a nominal value of the numerical aperture, the numerical aperture being equal to the nominal value when the optical system is operated using the immersion medium without reducing the numerical aperture by the aperture stop. The processor controls the optical system in accordance with the reduced value of the numerical aperture in the immersion-free imaging mode to generate at least one image representing the overview image of the sample.

  • Patent number: 11971531
    Abstract: A method is useable for determining a thickness of a cover slip or object carrier in a microscope, which has an objective facing toward a sample chamber. Two optical media border two opposing surfaces of the cover slip or object carrier and form two partially reflective interfaces, which are arranged at different distances from the objective. The method includes: deflecting a measurement light beam by the objective with oblique incidence on the cover slip or object carrier; generating two reflection light beams spatially separated from one another by the measurement light beam being partially reflected on each of the two interfaces; receiving the two reflection light beams by the objective and conducting them onto a position-sensitive detector; registering the incidence locations on the position-sensitive detector; and determining the thickness of the cover slip or object carrier based on the registered incidence locations.

  • Publication number: 20240000134
    Abstract: A vaporizer device may include a controller and a heater control circuitry. The controller may generate, based at least on a temperature of a heating coil in a cartridge coupled with the vaporizer device, an output signal for controlling a discharge of a battery of the vaporizer device. The battery may be discharged to the heating coil to increase the temperature of the heating coil and cause a vaporization of a vaporizable material contained in the cartridge. The heater control circuitry may determine the temperature of the heating coil. The heater control circuitry may further control, based on the output signal from the controller, the discharge of the battery to the heating coil. The heater control circuitry may be powered by a voltage rail coupled to a voltage regulator configured to regulate an output voltage of the battery.
