stereo microscopy

German: Stereomikroskopie
Japanese: 実体顕微鏡法

Optics. Three-dimensional magnified visualization of a sample. The stereo microscope uses two separate optical paths with two objectives and two eyepieces to provide slightly different viewing angles to the left and right eyes. In this way it produces a three-dimensional visualization of the sample. The magnification is between 6 to 40 times. The stereo microscope is often used as a surgical microscope.
