Polarized light Microscopy

Result

polarized light microscopy Polarized light microscopy image of a fiber in cross polarizers

Polarized light microscopy image of a fiber in cross polarizers. From the “blinking” dark and bright alternation the twist of the 2 mm cellulose fiber is clearly visible.

Advantages

  • Fast technique with high resolution color images revealing particles contamination size and morphology
  • Very powerful for the discrimination of hair and fibers
