Scanning Microscope, Confocal Scanning Microscope and Transmission Electron...
 
...Microscope? Hi,
I wanted to know the difference between a Confocal Scanning Microscope and the Transmission electron microscope. It seems like they both work the same way.
Also, why is it called a Confocal SCANNING Microscope even though the way the image is visualized is different than a Scanning Microscope.
If there are any recommended books or papers that explain the basics would be greatly appreciated!

Hi:)
The confocal microscope is an optical system.
The transmission electron microscope is an electronic system.
It's a great difference.
