Inverted Material Science Microscopes IM 500 DIC
> Reflected light microscopy is the choice for imaging opaque samples. The sample is illuminated from above through the objective. Because light is unable to pass through opaque samples, it is directed on the surface and returned to the objective by reflection
> Inverted reflected light microscope has two eyepieces, normally 10x magnification, and, in most cases, a tube head dedicated for using a camera system, this connection can be on the viewing tube or on the microscope body.
> The nosepiece is capable of holding from four to six objectives, these can be recognized by the Epi tag on their external cover.
> Mechanical stage sample holder can be moved in the XY axis , while the entire stage can be moved up and down through coarse and fine focusing mechanism. In certain configurations these movements can be automated by using motorized stage systems.
> The illumination system is built-in with dedicate lamp housing, the generated light passes through a vertical illuminator to the nosepiece and then deflected to the viewing tube head.
> The sample is placed upside down on the stage with the surface to be observed facing the objective.
> Several techniques are commonly used: Brightfield, Darkfield, Polarized light and Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) and fluorescence.
- Additional information
Microscopes is designed to supply state-of-the-art reliability and cost/efficient high performance
The advantage of these microscope type is that samples can have bigger shape with only one flat surface
Software is leading-edge digital imaging software for a wide variety of metallurgical applications, for labs set up, for quality control or quality assurance, production, inspection, failure analysis and research
echoLAB offers also necessary accessories, high performance cameras and different software from basic image capture (included with the camera) to advanced automated image analysis for particle sizing and metallurgical analysis (e.g. grain size, inclusion counts, porosity etc).
