  • Patent number: 10133063
    Abstract: A microscope includes at least one correction unit arranged in a beam path for correcting a variable spherical aberration. The correction unit has at least one optical correction element that is arranged in a convergent or divergent area of the beam path such that the optical correction element is movable along an optical axis. The at least one optical correction element has at least one correction surface. A part of the at least one correction surface through which the convergent or divergent area of the beam path passes forms a correction-effective surface section whose radial extension crosswise to the optical axis is adjustable by moving the correction element along the optical axis.

  • Publication number: 20180307021
    Abstract: An immersion objective lens for a microscope includes a first lens group having positive refractive power, a second lens group having positive refractive power, a third lens group having negative refractive power and a fourth lens group having positive refractive power disposed in this sequence from the object side. The second lens group is moveable along an optical axis so as to achieve a corrective effect with respect to a spherical aberration, such that a sum of a distance between the second lens group and the first lens group and of a distance between the second lens group and the third lens group is constant. The corrective effect of the second lens group is predetermined such that the spherical aberration is minimized for a light incidence that corresponds to a mean numerical aperture that lies between zero and a nominal aperture of the immersion objective lens.

  • Publication number: 20180056954
    Abstract: A solenoid valve comprises a valve closing body, which can open or close a valve passage formed in a valve seat body which is pressed into a valve housing, and comprising a magnet armature acted upon by a restoring spring, arranged in a through-bore of the valve housing. In addition to a press-fit segment, the valve seat body has a clearance-fit segment along the outer jacket of the valve seat body. The clearance-fit segment has a reduced outside diameter in relation to the press-fit segment. The valve housing also has a tube segment, which deflects radially inward and which has a constant inside diameter that is reduced relative to the outside diameter of the press-fit segment. The tube segment thus deflecting into the clearance-fit segment of the valve seat body because of the elasticity of the tube segment.
