The Desmid Micrasterias thomasiana.

 This microbe is a green algae found in acidic water. I illuminated it with light of a short wavelength (UV 360 nm ) which is absorbed by the molecular structure of the cell, and which is then re-radiated at longer wavelengths , namely, red light. Several filters are needed in order to form barriers against the UV radiation.  Fluorescence microscopy works well on green algae. Steve Durr.

Fascinating. Fluorescence microscopy is one of the things I want to learn more about.
