where a is the angular aperture, or half-angle, of the cone of light entering the objective lens from the specimen; N is the refractive index of the medium between the specimen and the objective lens (i.e., the relative velocity of light in the medium compared with the velocity in air); and A is the wavelength of the incident light. Resolution is improved by using shorter wavelengths of light (decreasing the value of
