B-380 Polarized Light

OPTIKA B-380 Series offers superb image quality in polarized light, being complete of polarizer and analyzer filters, Bertrand lens for conoscopic observation, compensator plates, high-precision rotatable stage and the state-of-the-art, exclusive X-LED³ lighting source (3.6W) for a 20 mm field of view.

Polarized light microscopes are designed to observe specimens that are visible primarily due to their optical anisotropic or birefringent features.  They are best known for their applications in the geological sciences, however, a wide variety of other materials can be examined, including both natural and industrial minerals, concrete, ceramics, mineral fibers, polymers, starch, wood, urea. In addition to them, polarizing light is needed in chemistry, biology, metallurgy, and even diagnostic fields (for gout analysis).

POLARIZED LIGHT

The polarized light microscope is designed to observe specimens that are visible primarily due to their optical anisotropic or birefringent features. Polarized light microscopy is perhaps best known for its applications in the geological sciences, which focusses primarily on the study of minerals in rock thin sections. However, a wide variety of other materials can be examined in polarized light, including both natural and industrial minerals, concrete, ceramics, mineral fibers, polymers, starch, wood, urea. The technique can be used both qualitatively and quantitatively with success, and is an outstanding tool for the materials sciences, geology, chemistry, biology, metallurgy, and even diagnostic (gout analysis).

B-380 Series is available also in different techniques (darkfield, brightfield, fluorescence, material science, phase contrast).
