    Microscopes help man to see. All microscopes and imaging devices have an inherent resolution that limits the maximum magnification at which they can be used. The principle of scanning greatly simplifies an imaging instrument and sometimes is the only way a picture can be made. Any signal that varies in various areas of a sample can, in principle, be used to make an image.
