Polarising Optical Microscope

Model: Axio Scope A1Instrument for the study of optical properties of birefringent materials. Polarized light microscopy is a contrast-enhancing technique that dramatically improves the quality of an image acquired with birefringent materials when compared to other techniques such as brightfield and dark field illumination. Polarized light microscopes possess a high degree of sensitivity and can be used for both qualitative and quantitative studies targeted at a wide range of anisotropic specimens.
