DIY Laser Microscope

at 3:54 pm. Filed under Cool Gadgets, DIY Hacks


Teravolt.org has an interesting demonstration of a Quick and Dirty DIY Laser Microscope. What you are looking at is a laser sitting on a book and the beam is shining through a drop of water that is hanging on the tip of a syringe. The water was taken from a potted plant which is why it’s teeming with life. I think we could have increased the number of people if we said it was tap water. 🙂

    I tried tap water. It wasn’t too exciting. About 1 bacteria every 45 seconds or so.

    I’ll have to try this with my laser. I see you cat finds this entertaining, perhaps mine will as well, since all my cats hold PhD’s in various fields of science. 🙂

    Looks like the site is over their quota. I would try back in a day or two.

  6. grenadier Says:

    Yeah, my site should be back up in two days. Someone linked to it on reddit and my bandwidth was eaten up in 4 hours.

  7. Alan Parekh Says:

    Nice! I hear Reddit can drive Digg like traffic these days.

    Here’s a pic I drew explaining how everything works.

    Cool! I guess with a little effort and you would make holograms out of it 😀

    I doubt it. You won’t be able to get bacteria to stay still.
