Introduction: Laser Microscope. Simple But Awesome Project

Picture of Laser Microscope. Simple But Awesome Project

Summer is fun and making something its super fun! In this day i will show you how to make Microscope using a Laser pointer. This is fun project and easy project ! anyone can build this!

Its can use to see a bacteria, small object and anything. The cost to build this is under 1 dollars!

You can use it for school project, science project and etc. Ok lets make it

Step 1: You Needs:

Picture of You Needs:
  • Laser pointer
  • 1 Toothpicks
  • Some tape
  • Rubber eraser
  • Old Card for make the holder

Step 2: Simple

Picture of Simple
  • Take laser, card, and some tape
  • Tie the laser to the old card with tape like image
  • And Next....

Step 3: The Eraser

Picture of The Eraser
  • Take the eraser and toothpick
  • Insert the toothpicks into the eraser like image
  • And finish!

Step 4: Installations

Picture of Installations
  • Place the eraser in front of the laser
  • Drop a water at the end of the toothpick
  • Turn on the laser and look the life on the drop of water
  • If you want to see how it works, Look the video

Step 5: Finish

Sorry for my bad english

I TAUGHT THAT TO MY STUDENTS IN OTHER WAY YEARS AGO, BUT THE CONCEPT IS THE SAME LOOKING TO THE ONE OF US, BUT OLDER... ANYWAY, GREAT FOR ALL CURIOUS THAT WANT TO START ON THIS FIELD... NICE WORK!!!

: D

I am skeptical this is resolving down to the size of bacteria. I would suggest trying it with some cheek cells from your mouth suspended in water. They are easily recognized and the size and shape of the nucleus is predictable. Bacteria need 200-400x and I doubt a water droplet has this magnification - just guessing.

Thank you for your suggestion. Yes, I believe that the cheek cells from mouth has that predictable shape. Thank you :)

The video looks like Brownian motion of particles in suspension in the droplet.

Thank you for look my works. Happy making!

Neat trick. The laser beam expands using the water drop as a lens. This is how the first microscopes were done - without glass lenses!
Then the laser turns it into a projector.

Thank you very much!!

You should probably mention it projects onto the wall

Brilliant! Love it :D

balsuryana (author)throbscottle2016-08-02

Thanks for look my works! I hope you enjoy this! :n)

Another good thing to mention is don't point laser into eyes

throbscottle (author)br0x2016-08-02

Legaly compliant laser pointers are too weak to do any damage - it's still unpleasant though.

balsuryana (author)throbscottle2016-08-02

Thanks for look my works. Happy making!!

balsuryana (author)br0x2016-08-02

Thanks for look my work and thanks for suggest me. Thanks

You might do well to avoid the creature illustrated on that card, also! At a half ton and 10', those fangs don't seem to be for opening Pixie Stix! I'll take on Lake Erie algae bloom any day!

Your English is fine; but even after watching the video I am not sure yet how I can make the same. ..can you please give us a bit more details

JasperD1 (author)dbuckley62016-08-02

The basic execution is fairly simple. you want the laser pointer to aim through the water onto the wall. with his specific method, you will want to adjust the eraser until the height of the toothpick's tip and the height of the laser are about the same.

As for why it works, the light from the laser hits the water droplet placed at the tip of the toothpick and refracts when it hits the drop of water. because the water has a round shape, the light refracts differently at each point and produces a reversed image on the back of the wall. This can be referred to as a liquid lens.
