Intermediate lens
    G: 13 of 14

The first intermediate lens magnifies the initial image that is formed by the objective lens:

The lens can be focused on:

  • Initial image formed by the objective lens, or
  • Diffraction pattern formed in the back focal plane of the objective lens.

This determines whether the viewing screen of the microscope shows a diffraction pattern or an image.

Will the diffraction pattern be magnified as much by the intermediate lens as the image is? Explain your answer.
