A Point of View on Microscopy Research, the History of the Microscope and a hint of Interdisciplinary Academia
My aim with this blog is to share with others some of my interests, mainly in microscopy and bioimaging. You can expect to see a few different styles of posts as detailed in Welcome to The Little Eye.
Why “The Little Eye”?
I’ve taken the name The Little Eye from Galileo Galilei who coined his early compound microscopes: “Occhiolino”, Italian for “little eye”. The term “microscope” was coined by Giovanni Faber, a contempory of Galileo, and comes from the Greek words for “small” and “to look at”, intended to be analogous to “telescope” (see Welcome to The Little Eye).
