Microstructural Characterization including Compositional Analysis

Webinar on-demand


Leica Microsystems’ versatile upright compound microscope, DM6 M, fitted with Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy module will let you not only analyze metallographically polished samples and conduct grain size analysis and steel inclusion rating but also, on the same system and at the same time, obtain qualitative compositional information about features as small as 20 micrometers without any additional sample preparation and without needing to transfer the sample to an electron microscope. Join us to see this system in action.

Key Learnings

  • Discuss microstructural analysis methods and how Grain Expert and Phase Expert can help with the verification of material microstructures.
  • Review ASTM Standards E768 and E1245 pertaining to inclusion assessment.
  • Analyze when polarized light applications are most helpful in revealing grain structures, internal strains and plastic deformation.
  • Outline benefits of Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and how it can save time when determining microstructural composition.
