Gypsum captured at 400x magnification under the MT9300 polarizing microscope.
Polarizing microscopes are used for toxicology, chemistry, pharmaceutics, medicine, the pulp/paper industry, and forensic medicine. They can also be utilized in finding stress points in metal, glass and other materials.
Vitamin C captured at 400x magnification under a polarizing microscope.
Sugar captured at 100x magnification under the polarizing microscope.
Because polarizing microscopes use a polarizer and an analyer to affect the light passing through the microscope, often the images produced are brilliant in color.
