Thanks for the reply! I'm a little confused though; what do you mean by maintaining mechanical alignment between the objective and moving sample? The specimen would be a layer of gel spun onto a substrate, so there is no flow, with a coverslip on top. Do you mean that in moving the specimen in...
For oil immersion microscopy, I understand that the oil is required to increase the numerical aperture, and thus the resolution, of the lens. I have tried looking into these microscopes and the only method I have seen of applying the oil is to place a dot of it on the lens and then lower the...
I think I might have got it now...
So for this new variable Y=X1-X2, I have to also calculate a new standard deviation which is sqrt(0.12 + 0.12) = 0.1*sqrt(2)
So P(X>0.3) = 1 - P(X<0.3)
= 1 - Phi[0.3/(0.1*sqrt(2))]
= 1 - Phi[2.1213...]...
