Axioskop 40 Pol microscope for polished specimens
Axioskop 40 Pol is the perfect choice for all polarizing and materials microscopy applications such as geology, mineralogy, materials testing, materials research or other fields.
The 6 position centring nosepiece, with a position for reflected light darkfield and DIC, allows the Axioskop 40 Pol to save the time-consuming changing of objectives – for example, when you want to change between reflected and transmitted light. A crucial advantage that allows highly efficient work – and a unique feature in this category of microscopes.
No other polarizing microscope in this class offers you five reflector places. For Brightfield, Darkfield, Pol, C-DIC and transmitted light POL. The P&C (Push and Click) modules can be changed quickly and easily without any tools. The Axioskop 40 POL reflector includes a proprietary "Light Trap" that is designed to eliminate stray light from the reflector module giving a class winning improvement in image contrast. contrast.
Axioskop 40 Pol is the first polarizing microscope that enables the use of an innovative contrasting technique: C-DIC. Similar to the circular polarizer this technique also works with circularly polarized light. C-DIC works with the newly designed EC Epiplan-Neofluars using a slider fitted into the compensator slot. There are two sliders available, one for 5x, 10x and 20x magnifications and the other for 50x and 100x. Optimum contrast is attained simply by turning the knurled ring as opposed to rotating the specimen stage.
