Metallography with Color and Contrast

The examination of microstructure morphology plays a decisive role in materials science and failure analysis. There are many possibilities of visualizing the real structures of materials in the light microscope. The image samples shown in this article demonstrate the information potential of some of the techniques used.

Polarization Contrast

Polarization microscopy is routinely applied in material sciences and geology to identify minerals on the basis of characteristic refraction properties and colors. In biology, polarization microscopy is commonly used for identification or imaging of birefringent structures like crystals, or for imaging of cellulose in cell walls of plants and starch grains.

Exclusive Aesthetics of Nature

Gemstones have fascinated people for thousands of years. Rulers and kings used to demonstrate their power and wealth with jewel-studded insignia. Although fine jewellery is still a status symbol of the rich, we now tend to treasure these wonders of nature more for our own pleasure in beauty and harmony.

Micropolarimetric Analysis of Guard Cell Walls in M. Koenigii versus De Novo Localized Starch Granules in Freshly-Isolated Potato Tuber

Polarized light microscopy (PLM) has often been utilized in the fields of geology and the material sciences with significant implications in determining the mineral compositions and structures of composite materials (e.g. fibers) through the use of typical quartz wedge compensators, mica quarter-waveplates and de Sénarmont compensation.

Quality as Clear as Glass - Polarizing Microscopy in Glass Production

An exquisite beverage deserves a high-quality glass. Even the ancient Romans made artistically crafted drinking glasses. In the Middle Ages, Venetian glassmakers were famous for the purity of their glass. One of the oldest materials known to man, glass is used today in many areas, in which it must meet the most stringent quality standards.
