Invention of the first microscope occurred about 1600 A.D. (3:39). As technology advanced, by 1887 improvements in resolution enabled John Buist to observe the small pox virus (3:40). Then, throughout the 20th century, progress in the field of microscopy accelerated (3:40). Ernst Ruska's invention of the electron microscope around 1930 increased resolutions by orders of magnitude (3:40). This was quickly followed by the development of phase contrast, differential interference contrast, and fluorescence microscopy techniques (11:183).
