ultraviolet microscope A microscope that has quartz lenses and slides and uses ultraviolet radiation as the illumination. The use of shorter wavelengths than the visible range enables the instrument to resolve smaller objects and to provide greater magnification than the normal optical microscope. The final image is either photographed or made visible on a fluorescent screen by means of an image converter.
