Medical Definition of Intermediate image plane

1. In a light microscope, the plane into which the objective lens directly focuses the image of the specimen. The plane is usually located a set distance (commonly 10 mm) below the shoulder for the ocular and another fixed distance (generally 160 mm) behind the rear focal plane of the objective lens. The ocular forms a virtual image of the intermediate image for visual observation, or projects a real image for photography and video microscopy. Note: The objective lens, combined with the coverslip of proper thickness, is corrected for projecting the primary image to the specified intermediate image plane only. (05 Aug 1998)
