If you would like to investigate crystalline structures, polarization microscopy will serve you best. Whether it be minerals, plastics and polymers, drugs and pharmaceuticals, or pigments and cement, with our polarization microscopes you will see what interests you most as a researcher or in quality assurance.
Depending on your application, you can choose from three different systems for polarization microscopy:
You need a few components to get what you aim for in polarization. These are the most important:
LED illumination saves you money in many ways: It consumes less energy than halogen illumination, and does not need to be replaced, causing downtime of your instrument, because it has a lifetime of up to 25,000 hours. Further advantages:
If you want to do everything in polarization microscopy, you can with the Leica DM4 P.
Store and recall information with coded components
Identify interesting structures
Get different sample information from different magnifications of the 6-objective nosepiece.
By the way: The nosepiece is also coded, so that it supports you intelligently.
You can configure the Leica DM4 P with LED illumination either for transmitted light or incident light or with LED for both transmitted light an incident light in one go.
When the microscope is equipped for both incident and transmitted light, the associated objective, that is with or without cover glass correction, should be used from magnification >10x.
Conoscopy is used to investigate interference figures. Their shape and the modifcation achieved by compensators yields information about the optical properties of the investigated material. You can determine the number of optical axis, the angle(s) of optical axis and the optical character of the material.
The Leica DM4 P is ideally suited to conoscopy:
If you do not need full automation and maximum reproducibility, the Leica DM2700 P is your instrument of choice. Apart from the automation, it offers a flexibility which is similar to the Leica DM4 P.
In education you need a robust tool that students can use every day. You can easily plug and play it – that’s what we call best preconditions for successful learning.
Flexible according to your tasks, safe and easy in operation through coded functionalities for research, inexperienced operators, or multiple-user environments
