Webinar: Easy Use of Digital Microscopy for Materials Science

September 25, 2012

Digital image capture following image analysis and measurement is the standard in materials labs today. However, achieving a high-quality digital image starts by optimizing the microscope's optical system, including its illumination.

The process of optimizing the microscope can be difficult, especially with manual microscopes, due to the flexibility and corresponding complexity of today's options. Add to all this, the sample variability that a materials lab handles, and capturing high resolution digital images can seem like an insurmountable task.

In this exciting webinar organized by GLOBALSPEC and presented by Leica Microsystems, attendees will learn how current technologies and specific equipment help generate supporting data for analysis and applications and for optimal results. They will experience how digital technology can help enhance workflow.

They will learn about the history, technology, benefits, and use of digital and optical microscopy methodologies.
