The polarizing microscope or “petrographic microscope” is used mainly in geological studies for geological specimens but also in medicine and biology. This type of microscope differs from the normal one by using a polarized light, in which the light waves vibrate in one direction. Unlike the ones from normal light that vibrate in random directions. It’s used in anisotropic materials (like minerals) because of their birefringent optical properties – they have several refractive indices. When studying a specimen the light has to pass through a polarizer (polarizing filter) and then in some cases through an analyzer – to increase the quality of image contrast.
This series microscope is a universal-type polarizing microscope, designed for teaching and conventional using.Plan destressing objectives provide excellent image and high definition.
Professional metal rotary stage, particularly craftwork,wear-resistant and resist ing corrode. Smooth rotating, comfortable operation, with locking device, very easy to use.Koehler illuminator systems, wide-range voltage, effectively protect and extend the life of bulbs.
Bertrand lens using the handle rotating structure, circular focus, more convenient and simple operation, reliable performance.Widely used in component analysis and identification on on a variety of mineral specimens and sample slices under polarized light.
