Different microscopy techniques are used to study the alloy microstructure, i.e., microscale structure of grains, phases, inclusions, etc. Metallography developed from the need to understand the influence of alloy microstructure on macroscopic properties. The knowledge obtained is exploited for the design, development, and manufacture of alloy materials. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/metallography-an-introduction/ Wed, 08 Jan 2020 12:43:00 +0000 Dionis Diez, PhD James DeRose https://www.leica-microsystems.com/18742 Basics in Microscopy Widefield Microscopy Image Gallery: Application Options with Leica DM2500 LED Microscope The number of applications in microscopy can be as manifold as life itself. Different specimens demand different contrast methods to get a decent result. Unstained cells normally do not show a very high contrast. Researchers approach this problem by either staining the specimen with dyes respectively fluorescent molecules; or adding contrast by manipulating the light passing through. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/galleries/image-gallery-application-options-with-leica-dm2500-led-microscope/ Tue, 23 Aug 2016 11:45:00 +0000 Dr. Christoph Greb, PhD Tamara Straube https://www.leica-microsystems.com/5122 Metallography Quality Assurance 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. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/metallography-with-color-and-contrast/ Tue, 30 Aug 2011 22:00:00 +0000 Ursula Christian, Prof. Dipl. Wirt. Ing. Norbert Jost https://www.leica-microsystems.com/3660 Basics in Microscopy Widefield Microscopy Optical Contrast Methods Optical contrast methods give the potential to easily examine living and colorless specimens. Different microscopic techniques aim to change phase shifts caused by the interaction of light with the specimen into amplitude shifts that are visible to the human eye as differences in brightness. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/optical-contrast-methods/ Thu, 09 Jun 2011 22:00:00 +0000 Wymke Ockenga https://www.leica-microsystems.com/3664 Basics in Microscopy Widefield Microscopy Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) Differential interference contrast (DIC) microscopy is a good alternative to brightfield microscopy for gaining proper images of unstained specimens that often only provide a weak image in brightfield. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/differential-interference-contrast-dic/ Mon, 06 Jun 2011 22:00:00 +0000 Wymke Ockenga
