Aart Bik's MicroScope Page

[microscope] [phone]

Aart Bik owns an AmScope microscope that is used for some occassional exploration of the small and tiny. For example, did you ever wonder what an Android phone screen looks like under a microscope? Of course you did! The picture to the right shows that what looks white to the naked eye is, in reality, when magnified, a large field of RGB (red-green-blue) elements, shaped differently for various types of devices. Other colors are, of course, obtained by adjusting the brightness of each RGB element appropriately, as illustrated in this picture too.

When Aart is done using the microscope to magnify tiny objects that are near, he sometimes uses a Meade ETX-90EC telescope to magnify large objects that are far away,
