A Choice of Contrasting Techniques
- Enjoy maximum homogeneity and a stray light free image background in brightfield and darkfield - disturbing stray light is minimized and color aberration is reduced.
- Investigate your samples with polarization contrast - using fixed analyzers, a measuring analyzer rotating through 360° and a rotating analyzer with rotating full-wave plate. Visualize bireflection and pleochroism on anisotropic samples even if no rotary stage is available.
- Take advantage of Circular Differential Interference Contrast (C-DIC), a polarization-optical technique which uses circularly polarized light.
