This means that thicker and bigger geological samples have to be sectioned and polished to fit under the limited working distance of a compound microscope. The Leica DVM 6 provides outstanding image quality, extra working distance and allows geologists to work with polished and unpolished samples (micro mounts, fossils, drilled cores …), make 3D reconstructions of their surfaces and enables classical petrographic work as well. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/free-webinar-on-demand-digital-microscopy-in-earth-science/ Wed, 30 Aug 2017 11:51:00 +0000 MSc Michael Doppler https://www.leica-microsystems.com/19440 Digital Microscopy Webinar On-Demand: Quality with Confidence From routine quality assurance to advanced 3D analysis of complex surface structures, there is a digital microscope solution to meet almost any request https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/webinar-on-demand-quality-with-confidence/ Tue, 09 May 2017 07:50:00 +0000 Clinton Smith, Mario J.

Since then a lot of progress has been made to increase the user friendliness, ergonomy, and optical performance of such microscopes. Still, one thing has not changed: Classical polarized light (compound) microscopes can only be used for prepared samples, because the working distance they offer is insufficient for whole samples. This article explains how earth scientists can analyze prepared and unprepared samples for polarized light applications with one single instrument, namely the Leica DVM6 M digital microscope. With the right choice of accessories it serves as a semi-quantitative polarization microscope. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/how-to-analyze-prepared-and-unprepared-geological-samples-with-one-digital-microscope/ Thu, 18 Aug 2016 07:21:00 +0000 MSc Michael Doppler https://www.leica-microsystems.com/17945 Digital Microscopy Quality Assurance Image Gallery: Digital Microscopy Used in Microelectronics and Electronics Quality Control Quality Control in the electronics and microelectronics industry is confronted with many challenges: A variety of different materials in a sample, some of them metallic and reflective, some matt; a variety of material layers and heights, most often very intricate and hard to discern.

The first, and generally most important, is lighting. There are plenty of options for light sources, Halogen, LED, and arc lamps are among the most popular for microscopes. Each light source has its own advantages and disadvantages and it is up to the user to learn which is best for the sample and application. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/color-infidelity-why-using-a-light-source-incorrectly-is-cheating-on-your-data/ Thu, 19 Nov 2015 16:28:00 +0000 Mike Tjepkema https://www.leica-microsystems.com/15767 Digital Microscopy Quality Assurance What You Always Wanted to Know About Digital Microscopy, but Never Got Around to Asking Digital microscopy is one of the buzz words in microscopy – and there are a couple of facts that are useful to know.

In a qualitative evaluation, these provide a better understanding and a more detailed documentation of the specimen. In addition, quantification of the surface provides valuable information about the composition of the surface and its wear. Which specimens are suitable for use with a Leica digital microscope, and what are the limitations of the method used? https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/3d-visualization-of-surface-structures/ Wed, 19 Sep 2012 22:00:00 +0000 Daniel Goeggel, Georg Schlaffer https://www.leica-microsystems.com/5141 Digital Microscopy Quality Assurance Trends in Microscopy There are digital cameras, digital TV sets, digital picture frames, digital schools on the internet.

Scientists of the Copenhagen Polychromy Network (CPN) help to show that the statues of the Greeks and Romans were decorated with extravagant ornaments and sumptuous colours. With the help of a surgical microscope and digital microscopy, the conservators detect tiny traces of paint pigment that suggest a veritable feast of colour in ancient times. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/ancient-feast-of-color/ Mon, 14 Dec 2009 23:00:00 +0000 Jan Stubbe Ostergaard, Kerstin Pingel
