OPTICAL MICROSCOPY

Optical microscopes are available at OMCS for different stages of sample preparation and analysis.

Polyvar Reichert-Jung Optical Microscope

-  Bright field (BF), dark field (DF) and polarisation modules

-  Can be operated in reflective or transmission mode

-  Equipped with Leica Application Suite (LAS) for image acquisition, complemented with extended capabilities for specific applications:-

  • Multifocus: creates a single sharp image by capturing a stack of images at diffeent focus positions and combining them automatically into an Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) image.
  • Multistep: creates 2D images from multiple tiled images captured automatically. Single images can be retreived and analyzed with LAS Image Analysis.
  • Montage and Montage Viewer: creates sharp 2D images from several partially in-focus images.
  • Grain Expert: evaluates the properties of materials by analysing grain size to help determine the characteristics of the final product.
  • Phase Expert: measures multi-phase microstructures indentified by their distinctive color or contrast in materials and metallurgy laboratories.
Leica M165C Stereo Microscope

-  Equipped with Leica Application Suite (LAS) for image acquisition, complemented with extended capabilities for specific applications:-

  • Live Z Builder: obtains a single in-focus image, if shallow depth of field provides only a partly focused image.
