Diffraction and resolution

 This lecture discusses and demonstrates diffraction in an optical microscope with the aid of classic diffraction demonstrations devised by Ernst Abbe in 1870s and was given at  4th Bangalore Microscopy Course. I have posted slides from the lecture (which includes images from the live demonstrations presented during the lecture), and also a zip file containing original papers on diffraction theory of imaging by Ernst Abbe (original German and English translation) and by Lord Rayleigh.
